Catcher in the Rye writing prompts never fail to get conversation started. And not just any surface conversation! In response to the 50 questions, learners will write a short quickwrite essay in a journal writing format. Questions like these get kids thinking deeply about life and talking deeply about the things that really matter.
SUGGESTED ACTIVITY IMPLEMENTATION
These writing prompts require students to write their unedited off-the-cuff responses to various quotes, situations, issues that arise from within the story. The questions take the students into memories from their lives (activating prior knowledge), connections with the story’s characters and history (encouraging empathetic reading and understanding), and deep areas of thematic meaning (spurring informal argumentation). These discussions might prove to be some of the most meaningful explorations your students experience.
