Catcher in the Rye is all about being a teenager. Since our students are using Twitter constantly, this assignment asks them to transfer Holden's thoughts into tweets. It helps the students get involved in the text and realize that Holden is going through problems that they face too. It also serves as a reading check for me! At the end the novel, I ask the students to choose 1 tweet they're really proud of to put on the large tweet. This decorates our in class twitter deck until we move on to the next unit.
