Yes, this works well. I did this a few year ago with The Scarlet Letter. I was looking for something to do with Catcher and like the other skills this complete lesson plans incorporates. thanks.

A very good lesson. I agree that this lesson could extend to other works that deal with communication/mis-communcation. I teach Much Ado about Nothing and could do a similar lesson with that work.

AWESOME idea! I just shared this in a workshop, and everyone loved it. I think this could also be used with other lit, espec. Shakespearean plays when the kids have difficulty connecting.
