ThingLink Requirements

Assignment Guidelines:        

  • Choose a main image that is representative of Holden Caulfield.
  • Add buttons to the image with text evidence and commentary to explain the evidence.
  • Each week you will have a different focus topic to help you know what to add.  You will be adding text, various sources (articles, images, songs, videos) that elaborate on your characterization of Holden Caulfield.

 

Weekly Assignments

Week #1: Who is Holden Caulfield? 

  • Choose an image to serve as the backdrop to your ThingLink.
  • Add three buttons that include text evidence and commentary to explain the main image you and your partner chose.

Week #2: How is Holden changing?

  • Add three buttons that indicate how Holden has changed over the last week’s worth of reading.  
  • What is he doing now that he wasn’t doing earlier? 
  • ONE of your three buttons needs to be multi-media.  Consider a video, image, article, that elaborates on how or why Holden has reached this point.

Week #3: Time to help Holden. 

  • This week add three buttons that help explain why Holden needs help and what you think he should do to get the help he needs. 
  • ONE of your three buttons needs to be multi-media.  Consider a video, image, article, that elaborates on how or why Holden has reached this point.

  • How did the ThingLink Process helped you understand Holden and the novel?
  • What parts of the ThingLink do you anticipate being able to use in your paper?
