This comprehensive 30 page, 4-6 week unit on Catcher in the Rye includes essential questions, technology, collaborative learning, active group discussion and lots of opportunities for writing. The unit includes material on historical information, character analysis, literary elements, rubric, research, a reading schedule, writing in different genres (i.e. blogging, poetry, letters, and persuasive essays).

Very helpful, as a first year teacher I was thrilled to find this amazing source. Saved me time and I felt it targeted the key issues in the novel.
