GRADE LEVEL: 10-12
CLASS TIME: 1 class period
This activity includes a student worksheet and an answer key/set of notes (preview above only shown for student worksheet, answer key is one full page of notes broken into the same categories as the student worksheet).
Provide your students with the worksheet first and have them consider the origin, progression, and resolution of Holden's inner conflict. Students could discuss this and work together in small groups. Or, the teacher can simply use the notes to share with students for an oral discussion. No matter how you use this combo-activity, your students will be sure to understand the inner workings of Holden's mind by the end.
