Teachers Lounge - Constructing an American Literature Conversation
A few weeks ago I received an email from a college student who will be student teaching in the fall. She came across a column I wrote in 1997 in which I described using the film Ordinary People as the basis of a writing assignment about
The Catcher in the Rye. She wrote that she is carrying out a large project on the novel that involves, among other things, writing a research paper and developing lesson
plans. She is concerned about possible objections from parents
and students about the abundance of profanity in the novel and wondered
if I would share some of the ways I taught the book.
