Students in Ms. Dawn O’Shea and Ms. Melinda Best’s 11th grade ELA class at the Junior-Senior High School practiced the application of vocabulary words with a giant word web.  

For the activity, they placed new vocabulary words on the web and were tasked to connect them to other words. Students accomplished this by using sentences that incorporated ideas, plot, characters, settings, etc., from “The Catcher in the Rye.”
