❤️️ This is an AMAZING resource. And that someone took the time (and saved me some!) to connect to Common Core in a meaningful, authentic, and very accessible way, well, that just makes this resource quite possibly one of the best I have ordered here. - S Norris

❤️️ The Catcher in the Rye Unit is extremely thorough from pre-reading to post-reading. I love the options available on every level to explore literary elements to literary techniques as well as testing and writing. As a homeschool mom working with my senior, I am in awe that you also feel such depth is important in the study of literature! - Susan S.

❤️️ Wonderful. SO thorough and covers everything that I'd like to with Catcher in the Rye, while making sure I'm connecting to Common Core. I wanted something that was going to require my students to be a little more in-depth than when I have taught this in year's past and I think this is great. Thank you! - Hannah S.

❤️️ This is a comprehensive resource for The Catcher in the Rye. This is the only source you will need to incorporate the Common Core into your lessons! - Donna A.

❤️️ This was a great resource. It was easy to follow, relevant to what I wanted in my unit, and challenging for my students! - Jennifer W.
