This worksheet offers six literary analysis questions for discussing Catcher in the Rye. The entire second sheet is a scaffolded outline for structuring a written response to the book.
Students create a thesis sentence based on their response to the discussion question, give details of their own and cite details from the text, as part of their brainstorm. They can also narrow down which elements they are using in their analysis while they are sketching out their ideas. At the end of the brainstorming session, students will have a complete outline with a quick way to pull citations and details from the textbook.
