Use this visually stunning package of chapter-by-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 with discussion starters is also included, of course. (A total of 23 pages in PDF format.)
The graphics feature important visual references from the book. All of the worksheets are designed to pull students into their reading assignments, while the questions will require them to dig deeply into the text and their own minds.
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.
