The Catcher in the Rye Blockbuster is a fast-paced competitive activity designed to be used after reading the whole novel. Students really enjoy Blockbuster- it was my students' favorite activity when I was teaching. The teacher divides the class into three (or four) teams;each student gets a student sheet which has 36 boxes on it. Each box has one, two, or three letters in it; the answers to the questions the teacher will ask must begin with these letters. The teacher has a similar sheet but his also has the questions and answers on it. The object of the game is to answer the most questions, thereby earning the most boxes.
