What Teachers Are Saying About The Outsiders Plot Diagram Resource:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students really enjoyed this. It fostered some GREAT discussion and writing. They were able to visualize the forward movement of the novel as we read and filled in the lines. I will use this again next year! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Perfect plot line! I enlarged and laminated it. The students used post-it notes to explain the different parts as we read the story!
