The Outsiders Vocabulary resource was designed to help students learn new vocabulary in The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton by using context clues. Instead of simply providing a vocabulary list with definitions, this resource helps students hone their skills in using context clues to determine the meaning of new words as they are used within the novel. This resource includes a vocabulary booklet organized by chapter sets where students read the new word in a quote from the novel and infer its meaning. Then, they look up the definition to see if they were correct. Presentation slides are included for easy class review or grading.


Included in The Outsiders Vocabulary Resource:

➡️ The Outsiders Vocabulary Booklet: Each of the seven booklet pages includes quotes from the novel that uses a challenging word. Students must use context clues to determine the meaning of the bolded word. After students have made their guesses, they determine the definition of the vocabulary term and add it to the assignment.

➡️ The Outsiders Context Clues Slides: Teach students different strategies that they can use to determine the meaning of challenging vocabulary in context with these ready-to-use presentation slides. Students will learn strategies like using synonyms and antonyms, looking for examples, determining parts of speech, and much more!

➡️ The Outsiders Vocabulary Definitions Presentation: After students have completed the assignment, use this PowerPoint presentation to review the definitions of each of the vocabulary terms with students. Each slide includes the quotes from the novel and an easy-to-understand definitions.

How to use The Outsiders Vocabulary Resource:
Startby teaching students about the different strategies they can use to determine the meaning of new vocabulary. The Outsiders Vocabulary resource is organized by the following chapter sets:

  • Chapters 1-2
  • Chapters 3-4
  • Chapters 5-6
  • Chapters 7-8
  • Chapters 9-10
  • Chapters 11-12

After students have read that chapter set, you will have them complete the relevant vocabulary assignment by getting them to use context clues to determine the definition of the term in each of the quotes.

Once students have made their inferences, have them look up the correct definitions or use the included presentation to review the meanings of the words with students.


What teachers are saying about the Outsiders Vocabulary Resource:

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a great lesson on context clues. I used it with an 8th great English class, and it went very well! Thank you!

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is one of the first resources that I've purchased from TPT that I have not modified in any way. I am using the entire PowerPoint and vocabulary packet as is because they are both thorough and easy for the students to understand! Thanks!

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ After I finished teaching The Outsiders this spring, I really felt like I needed a vocabulary element for my students next spring. This is exactly what I was looking for, and the same excellent quality that I've come to trust. Thank you!
