'The Catcher in the Rye': Full unit for the novel with PP, Tasks, Quotations and Assessments

(1)
This is a complete unit to teach the great novel ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ by J.D. Salinger. The unit is aimed at National 5 students in Scotland, but might also be suitable to Higher English. It can also be used for GCSE Language or Literature courses in England and Wales. It has a PP with all chapters of the novel and PP for assessments too. Each PP contains key points to focus on each chapter, comprehension questions and key quotations, as well as other tasks focusing on genre, setting, narrative, character and language analysis. Teachers might want to choose their own preferred audiobook to listen to the novel (available on Youtube) or read the novel with the class. I created this unit since I just couldn’t find much online, let alone a complete unit. I have used a few questions from other resources. I hope this is useful and enjoyable to teach!

Introduction to RUAE (Nat 5) with detailed PowerPoint lessons

(0)
A complete RUAE unit with detailed PowerPoint lessons, introducing the Close Reading component of the National 5 English course, as well as a booklet to complete tasks and a PowerPoint with answers for all tasks. The Power Point Unit shares general information about the course, such as the skills needed and general advice on how to improve. The material and tasks focus on every single close reading question type, giving a description, formula, advice, a question sample and a response sample, as well as a question of each type for pupils to answer independently. This resource comes along with a Word booklet for pupils to complete their tasks and a further Power Point that contains all the answers to the questions for the pupils to self-mark their work or go over it with them. This resource is suitable as an end of S3/Nat 4/but mostly as a Nat 5 unit. The generic information about the course has been adapted from the SQA website and some extracts and questions have been taken from other booklets and adapted for this unit. Hopefully this is useful for all. It has been designed with remote learning in mind, but can equally be used for when we are back in the classroom.

This unit of work is aimed at students taking National 5 English as part of the Set Text exam. It can also be used at National 4 level.

There are individual practice questions and full practice papers with answers. There is also a copy of the script to create new papers. Some of the tasks have been adapted from other resources. I hope this unit is useful. PS: It pained me to have had to remove the apostrophes from the name files to be able to zip it…

I have used a few resources I found or resources made by other teachers and have adapted them to suit my classes and teaching style. I hope this unit is useful and enjoyable to teach!

There is a PowerPoint for each lesson, with a section of the novel to read, comprehension tasks and some creative writing tasks. Towards the end of the unit, there is a diary writing task that could be used as a creative response assessment. Finally, there is an assessment task of a character critical essay with a success criteria, guidance and examples. I cannot take full credit for this unit, as some tasks (the grammar based ones) have been suggested by fellow colleagues, and so I am indebted to them for this, but the rest of the unit, tasks and assessment tasks have all been created by me. There is a very good reading of the novel currently available on Youtube that I have used occasionally, but this is a novel whee some pupils do want to take part on the reading because of its lively young characters.
