This packet contains several worksheets that break down several aspects of The Catcher in the Rye. I have used these both as individual assignments as well as comprehensive activities towards the end of the novel.
Worksheet #1: Important Quotations--This worksheet gives students an important quotation from the text and asks the students to identify 1. The Speaker, 2. The Context of the Quote, and 3. The Quote's importance in the novel.
Worksheet #2: Holden's Relationships with Women--This worksheet asks students to examine the women within the novel. The students are asked to group the women according to age (relative to Holden) and then determine Holden's attitude towards that particular group.
Worksheet #3: Holden's Place in a Man's World--This worksheet is similar to worksheet #2, but it asks the students to consider Holden's relationships with other men in the novel.
Worksheet #4: Holden's Psychological Traits--This worksheet asks students to consider psychological traits and then find cited evidence from the book to support their position.
