This assignment should be completed in preparation for writing a literary analysis essay on the symbolism of Holden's red-hunting hat.
The Exit Ticket/ Do Now assignment to transition into the activity is provided.
For this assignment, students will analyze five different excerpts from the text in which the hunting hat is referenced. Students will then analyze the text thoroughly enough to understand its context, and then determine what the hat reveals about Holden. The first example is completed and should serve as a model.
**Details within the textual evidence are highlighted to enable students to analyze more closely.
