Product Description
This test for The Catcher in the Rye contains four sections:

1. 15 character identification matching questions

2. 5 Quote identification and analysis short answer questions

3. 5 Symbol discussion and analysis short answer questions

4. An essay: a "raft" where students imagine they are Holden's therapist who has just listened to his entire story-- students are instructed to write in the voice of the therapist, identifying and discussing key points of Holden's story; identifying his strengths, weaknesses, and the key to his problems; and offering advice for what Holden should do to move forward in his life.

A task list score sheet is provided for the essay.

This exam could be given in a block period or over two short periods. The exam could also be given without the essay portion, or the essay could be a separate assignment.

The exam is a word document so you can modify it as desired.

This a challenging but fair exam, and the essay prompt leads to an essay that is actually fun to write and read!
