OUTSIDERS ACTIVITY: STEREOTYPES
Use this fun class activity for The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton to engage your students in exploring the theme of stereotyping! This is intended for use after Chapter 3 - 4, but could be used at any point in the novel.
HOW IT WORKS
Students will examine a variety of images around the classroom and will complete independent questions that will elicit stereotypical responses. With their group they will discuss their answers and examine their own stereotypes. This is always an eye-opener for students and it helps them empathize with the characters in the novel. They will also complete an Outsiders Task Card which allows them to explore Ponyboy's changing perspective on the Socs in chapter 3.
INCLUDED IN YOUR PURCHASE
• Detailed teacher instructions
• 5 images with questions that will elicit stereotypical responses
• An assignment sheet for students to record their answers
