Product Description
Students love their cell phones!
Why not turn kids' fascination with social media into fascination with Salinger's characterization in Catcher in the Rye
.

-----What secrets might we find on Holden's phone?

-----What songs would be on his playlist?

-----What items would be on his Amazon wishlist?

Enhance students' awareness of character development!

This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of characters in The Catcher in the Rye; however, it can be used with any character from literature or history...even current "characters" in the news.

The directions for the activity are as follows:

Imagine that your character exists in our society.

Imagine a phone homepage that displays his or her apps.

Choose apps from the following options, and then complete the

illustration/discussion component for each. (Brief description= 154-259 words).

You may be comical, but be sure to accurately represent your character’s traits as we’ve discussed them so far in the novel.

You will be evaluated on creativity and evidence of your understanding of the plot and character.---

I provide a blank cell phone where students draw or paste a background.

They must then choose options under categories that include:

---Entertainment (Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube),

---social connections (Facebook, Instagram, and match.com),

---shopping on Amazon,

---legitimate news, and

---self-indulgence (selfies, bitmoji, ringtones, games).

Students are required to discuss why their character would have accessed or posted various items.

The kids really love this project and I get awesome results.
