Sick of having students complete comprehension questions all the time? Or, sick of students googling EVERY answer? (This drives me nuts!) Make them open those books and delve into the text! This purchase will provide you with a quote hunt and a recommended activity/lesson plan that will accurately trace chapters 13 & 14 from J.D. Salinger's novel, The Catcher in the Rye. Additionally, there is a motif explanation and "wrap-up" activity that reinforces the text that you and your students covered. Add consistent motif discussions into your lesson plan(s) and watch the students make important thematic deductions as they explore the novel.
The QUOTE HUNT method proves to be a powerful one with many types of learners and useful for all types of literature based readings. For Catcher's chapter eleven and twelve there are fifteen "clues" provided to the students so that they can identify significant and important aspects from this area of study. Students are then asked to identify and find passage(s) that connect to each provided “clue”. They are prompted to record one or more quote(s) that they feel best matches the context clues along with page numbers.
The product can be used in class or as a homework assignment (also makes great independent work for your sub folder). It is very successful activity for many different types of readers and teaches them about quoting the text properly.
I have been using the Quote Hunt method for years and hope you find it a valuable classroom resource.
Here is an example (with possible outcomes) from chapter thirteen:
Result of being yellow while missing gloves…
“The more I thought about my gloves and my yellowness, the more depressed I got, and I decided, while I was walking and all, to stop off and have a drink somewhere” (100)
Interaction in the elevator…
“Innarested in a little tail t’night?” (101)
Holden makes a deal…
“Okay what? A throw or till noon? I gotta know.”
“Just a throw” (102).
