  1. Journal - 4 min. Choose a side!!! There’s no turning back now!!! Should Catcher in the Rye be taught in schools? Make a “T” chart to help with organization.

  2. 4 parts to a well-organized paragraph • M - Main idea • E - Example • L - Link • Transitions

  3. M: Main Idea • Main idea: for this paper, this will be the first point on your “T” chart. Generally, it is a good idea to put your BEST idea first. Think of the reader; how are you going to bring them to your side right from the start? With a strong start or a weaker start?

  4. One of Holden’s greatest gripes as he travels throughout New York City is phony people. Yet, Holden’s ability to question adults is one of his greatest assets. Throughout the story, Holden says phrases like, “But I knew Old Sally, the queen of phonies” (Salinger 116). Although Holden is not able to see past the “phoniness” and negativity of the adult world, we, as readers, can see further. Holden refuses to become a part of a machine that he hates, society. His independence is a great example for high school teenagers. As people grow up, it is necessary they recognize which ideas to support and which ideas to reject. Especially during these formative years, adolescents need to know what they believe in. Holden knows what he believes in and questions everything else. His skepticism is a model for all people in search of answers in a confusing world.

  5. E: Examples • Example: for this paper, examples are going to be quotes from the text that support your argument. A great resource for quotes is the book! Make sure you remember proper MLA citations (Salinger 24).

  7. L: Link • Link: The link is THE MOST IMPORTANT part to your paper. This shows the reader how the example supports your argument. Remember, it is not enough to litter your paper with quotes, but explain why these quotes are excellent support. Spend most of your energy on the “link” part of the paragraph.

His skepticism is a model for all people in search of answers in a confusing world. Even though Holden’s skepticism leads to his depression, students see a teenager’s struggle and can learn from it. Although Holden deals with his depression the wrong way, high school students can see the support systems they have around them.

  9. Transitions • Transitions: How are you going to move from point to point? You probably learned first, second, third, in conclusion in elementary school, but you can do better than that! Sometimes a transition will be an entire sentence. Sometimes transitions will crossover from one paragraph to the next. Try expanding further than first, second, and third. Plus, the ACT sees these as weak transitions.
