Use these chapter questions covering J.D. Salinger’s classic American novel, The Catcher in the Rye, to pull your students into the text and inspire them to think deeply about Salinger’s themes and the character of Holden Caulfield.
This packet includes 12 pages of student handouts with detailed questions (plot points, inference, and personal connections) covering all 26 chapters of Holden’s three-day journey around New York City. A separate 11-page detailed answer key is also included, of course. (A total of 23 pages in PDF format. A Google Drive version is also included for online learning.)
The study question handouts are grouped as follows:
In addition to working as homework assignments, the sheets can also serve as small-group or full-class discussion starters, short-answer quizzes, and/or differentiated enrichment. I like to mix-and-match the worksheets to keep things fresh as we work through our Catcher in the Rye unit.
