Product Description
A Text A and Text B comparison between the first two chapters of Catcher in the Rye and Green Day's song "Basketcase." After watching the music video and filling in the lyrics as a cloze exercise, students will then find a short passage from the first two chapters of Catcher in the Rye that best characterize Holden as a "basket case." Then, students will "mash-up" words from Text A (Catcher in the Rye) and Text B ("Basketcase") to create a unique statement and visual about Holden Caulfield. I used this activity with a 10th grade International Baccalaureate English class.
