Textual Evidence Textual evidence comes directly from the book. This can be a direct quote spoken by a character or a passage of narration. Response This is where you will respond to the text in a thoughtful way. Follow the guiding questions to respond at the three different levels of analysis. Each level should be at least 4-5 complete sentences. Each passage you choose should relate to the overarching question: To what extent does Holden represent a typical teenager or someone who has a serious mental disorder? Choose quotes that relate to Holden’s: Appearance Personality Attitude toward life Attitude toward other people Important relationships Other characters’ attitudes toward Holden Beliefs: What is important to Holden? Include the correct MLA format citation “ Text” (Author’s last name, page #). Level 1: The Context of the Quote Who is speaking? What is happening in the text at the time of this quote? What is the literal meaning of the quote? Level 2: Author’s Tools and Literary Elements What literary element(s) is/are revealed and how? Characterization – What does this passage reveal about the character? Setting – How does the setting in this passage impact the meaning? Conflict – What problem or issue is revealed? Theme – What theme or central message is revealed? Symbolism – What symbol is revealed and what does it represent? Tone – What is the author’s attitude toward the subject? Language Use (diction, syntax, imagery) – How does the language use advance the effect of the passage? What is the significance of these lines? What is the author’s intention? Why is the passage written in such a way? How is the passage related to the text as a whole? Level 3: Create a thematic claim Based on the evidence and the information from Levels 1 and 2, create a thematic claim. Then, support it with an argument. Is the claim true for the book as a whole? Is the claim true for the world? What might be an argument against the claim? How can you defend the claim? The Catcher in the Rye Dialectical Journal Assignment Chapter # ______
Category CRITICAL READER CONNECTED READER THOUGHTFUL READER LITERAL READER LIMITED READER 5 (46-50) 4 (43-45) 3 (37-42) 2 (30-36) 1 (<30) Responses Elaborate and insightful responses Detailed and meaningful responses Somewhat detailed responses Simple, factual responses that lack detail Incomplete or inadequate responses Quotes You consistently choose quotes that allow for deep, meaningful analysis of each of the required response questions. Most quotes allow for deep, meaningful analysis of the required response questions. Some, but not all, quotes are relevant in connection with the response you provide or they lack a connection to the required response questions. Few quotes allow for meaningful analysis. Quotes may or may not connect to the required response questions. The quotes chosen appear to be randomly selected with no real sense of purpose or the required response questions. Analysis You “read between the lines” of the text to explain the nuances of Holden’s character and offer strong insights into the claim how Holden is developing as a typical teenager or not. You construct a thoughtful and accurate interpretation of Holden’s character and how he views his world. Connections to the claim are evident. You have a good understanding of Holden’s character, but you tend to repeat ideas in showing Holden’s personality and how he views his world. Connections to the claim are vague or underdeveloped. Some responses lack sufficient detail. You accept the text literally without thinking of different possible interpretations of Holden’s character and/or in how he views his world. Connections to the claim are limited or insufficient. Your insight into Holden’s character is weak; how Holden views his world is barely examined. Either there are no connections to the claim character, or the ideas are inaccurate.
