Objectives for the Lesson: Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what The Catcher in the Rye says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. Determine a theme of the problems of growing up in the literature and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.
