Section outline


    Lincoln Day -- no school


    Outlines from last Friday due today;

    At the end of the novel we know Holden is somewhere getting analyzed, but for what? Using the links below (and, of course, your text) play the psychoanalyst for a little while and come up with the correct diagnosis for Holden.

      1. Determine whether Holden is suffering from depression, bi-polar disorder, or schizophrenia. Below are links giving symptoms of each. There are some overlapping ideas, so think it through carefully. You likely will have to do some extra research to get through the symptoms (what is a "manic episode," or what is "hypomania," for example). Use sufficient examples from the book to justify your diagnosis.
      2. Identify treatment Holden requires. This also you will need to look up.

    This is due Friday. Submit to Google Classroom, with paper formatted in proper MLA format. Submit a copy to ANY plagiarism will result in a score of ZERO.
