INCLUDED IN YOUR PURCHASE:

INTRODUCTION TO THE OUTSIDERS:

This 17 slide Google Slides and Powerpoint introductory presentation includes pre-reading discussion questions and activities, author’s biography, fun whole-class quiz, and background information on the novel.

CHAPTER SUMMARY CARDS:

Includes digital and print cards that you can keep handy for those students who struggle with reading comprehension. They can also be useful if a student is looking for a particular part of the plot. They can check the summary cards to find the correct chapter! I also included blank digital versions so you can have students write their own chapter summaries!

READING COMPREHENSION QUIZZES:

Includes 6 print and digital reading quizzes that include 6 multiple choice questions and 2 quotes from the novel. Students need to explain what is happening at this particular point in the plot based on the quote. This eliminates cheating, since students will have had to read the actual text (not just an online summary) to find the answers. A detailed answer key for each quiz is included

VOCABULARY PRESENTATION & BOOKLET:

• A Google Slides and Powerpoint presentation explaining to students how to determine the meaning of an unknown word using context.

• An Outsiders Vocabulary Digital and Print Booklet for students with quotes from the novel that use challenging vocabulary. Students use context to determine the meaning of the bolded word. There is also a place for the actual definition to be inserted.

• A 27 Slide Google Slides and Powerpoint presentation to go over each of the vocabulary words with synonyms/definitions for students to easily understand the new terms (organized by chapter sets)

READING QUESTIONS:

• Reading questions in digital and print format that include basic comprehension questions, ‘Digging Deeper’ questions, and literary devices questions.

• A 58 Slide Google Slides and Powerpoint presentation that includes all the answers to the questions for easy review with the whole class.

ANALYSIS NOTES:

• A 26 Slide Google Slides and Powerpoint presentation to go over the notes with your students for each of the sets of chapters. The notes include information on Setting, Characterization, Theme, Plot etc.

EXPLORING STEREOTYPES CLASS ACTIVITY:

Students will examine a variety of images 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.

SOCS VS GREASERS ACTIVITY:

Use this class activity to engage your students in exploring the similarities and differences between the Socs and Greasers.

EXPLORING THE THEME OF IDENTITY ACTIVITY:

Students examine what groups they identify with and complete a fun assignment which gets them to investigate their own stereotypes, misconceptions etc. 

NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY CLASS ACTIVITY

Use this class activity to engage your students in exploring the meaning and theme of Robert Frost's poem Nothing Gold Can Stay as found in in S. E. Hinton's novel The Outsiders! This is intended for use after Chapter 5 - 6, but could be used at any point in the novel.

FUN AND CREATIVE DIGITAL AND PRINT ASSIGNMENTS

TATTOO A GREASER ASSIGNMENT

Have students give a greaser two tattoos and explain their reasons with support from the text! Students will be required to show an understanding of symbolism as the tattoos must relate in some way to the greaser's personality or a theme that develops in the reading. 

THE OUTSIDERS INTERVIEW ASSIGNMENT

Students write a transcript of the interview Ponyboy gives to the reporters based on the newspaper article from the novel!
