OKAY. LET’S FIND A QUOTE TOGETHER.


  1. Type in “Catcher in the Rye” into the search bar.




  1. Now, open up the article called “Holden’s Irony in Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye” (it is number 6).




  1. Click on the left where it says “PDF File”.

Now, let’s scan the article. At the bottom of page 204, there’s an awesome quote about the article he wrote for Stradlater: “Anger, depression, sadness, and the idea that there is no one who truly understands drive him to spill this angst out on paper” (204).

  1. Now, let’s copy paste that into our essay template. (I’ve done this for you.)




  1. Now, write an intro to explain how that quote is goof evidence under the “Madness, Depression, Suicide” paragraph.




  1. Lastly, you will need to make a Works Cited Entry at the end of the paper. To find the info, hover your cursor over the right toolbar until the “cite” tab comes up. Scroll down to find MLA. Then copy/paste that at the end of your paper! (I’ve done this for you).


That’s it! Time to write your paper!
Each thematic section should have one quote from the book and one quote from an EBSCO article. It is okay to have multiple quotes from the same EBSCO article. However, you need to assess a minimum of 2 EBSCO articles. In addition to writing the body sections, you will need to write an introduction, conclusion, and Works Cited page. You will turn your final essay into Turnitin.com on the assigned date.
