This standards-based product contains excerpts from the EB White personal essay "The Ring of Time" and the JD Salinger novel The Catcher in the Rye.
Students will practice analysis through 8 text-dependent multiple choice questions focused on the central idea and its development in "The Ring of Time."
Students will practice synthesis through an essay prompt that asks them to identify how the central idea can be traced through the essay and the novel excerpt. Students will gather details about similarities in setting, plot, characterization, symbolism, theme, and narrative voice in order to gather evidence. Students will then organize their ideas about how these details can be synthesized to show similarities between the texts.
