    Mind Spark: Who is Holden? What is his truth?

    Free-write for 10 minutes about one part in chapters 4-7 that stood out to you and that might lead you to answer the MindSpark.

    Look at a quote, a passage, or a moment you want clarification in

    (Hints: Jane, Allie, Fight with Stradlater, etc).


    Unreliable narrator

    Unreliable Narrator

    Either from ignorance or self-interest, this narrator speaks with a bias, makes mistakes, or even lies. It is kind of like advertisements — there is a manipulation a half truth - there's a real story in there somewhere, but you're left to piece it together through all the lies, half-truths, and mistruths.

    Part of the pleasure and challenge of these first-person stories is working out the truth, and understanding why the narrator is not straightforward. It's also one tool an author uses to create an aura of authenticity in his or her work.

    Rules of setting

    “Rules of Setting”

    … are “rules” for a particular time and place, such as the 1950s.

    EXAMPLES: They are rules/codes of behavior, dress, speech, relationships...They are what is considered acceptable/usual/normal...

    What are some “Rules of Setting” for today?

    TURN AND TALK


    Expert on rules of setting 1950s

    Expert on “Rules of Setting:” 1950s

    The Group you are currently sitting in, will be your “Home Team”

    Each of you will be assigned a number and you will proceed to the appropriate station.

    Rotate once or twice. (For example, if you are assigned the number 2, you will most likely visit stations 2, and then 3, possibly 4).

    Once you are at a station, research/analyze the aspect of the 1950’s, You must create a worksheet to organize your thoughts. Be creative! The worksheet can be anything you want it to be—an outline, a summary, a picture.

    You will become experts of your station and will need to teach your Home Team!!! So, use a writing format that works for you.


    Example of outline

    Example of Outline:

    The catcher in the rye chapters 1 3

    Aim: How do the “rules” of setting contribute to an individual’s “truth” (personality, motivations, intentions, conflicts)?

    (Remember: “Rules” of setting are the rules/codes of behavior, dress, speech, relationships that are what is considered acceptable/usual/normal in a specific time period, like the 1950s)

    Consider the following questions:

    • What are you noticing about how women are portrayed in The Catcher in the Rye? How does this relate to the “rules” of setting?

    • How might the prevailing themes (loneliness, phoniness) be linked to the “rules” of setting?

    • What are some similarities and/or differences of the “rules” of setting” in The Catcher in the Rye and The Perks of Being a Wallflower?

      DIRECTIONS: Free write for 7 minutes on 1 or more of these questions. As you do so, come up with your own questions (or sub-questions) that you have and bring into the discussion.

      *** Be sure to reference page numbers, quotes, and/or passages as evidence to support your questions & claims.

      *** You will also be able to use the digital media we used yesterday as your evidence. So think of the clips and pages you want to refer to!

      Please answer reflectively and thoughtfully on a piece of paper.


    The catcher in the rye chapters 1 3

    2011: “These days, insecure in our relationships and anxious about intimacy, we look to technology for ways to be in relationships and protect ourselves from them at the same time… Digital connections… may offer the illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship. Our networked life allows us to hide from each other, even as we are tethered to each other.”

    ___ Sherry Turkle: Why We Expect More

    from Technology and Less from Each Other (pp. xii, 1)


    The catcher in the rye chapters 1 3

    1951: “I’m always saying ‘Glad to have met you’ to somebody I’m not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though.” ____ Holden, The Catcher in the Rye Chapter 12 (pg. 87).

    Compare the above quotes, separated by 60 years. Do you agree or disagree with them? How are they related? How might this connect with themes of loneliness and phoniness?
