The Outsiders Lesson Plans

Hinton was still in high school when she wrote The Outsiders, first published in 1967. An immediate sensation, the novel is now considered the best-selling young adult novel of all time. Its realistic portrayal of teenage life—drawn from Hinton’s experience at a high school in Tulsa, Oklahoma—stood in marked contrast to the light, shallow young adult fiction of the day. Audiences responded, and The Outsiders changed the genre. The Outsiders centers on the violent rivalry between two high school social groups: popular, well-to-do students and poor, unpopular students who are considered “lower class.” Hinton weaves a narrative fraught with tension and drama; the action is nonstop from the moment early in the book when the Socs jump Ponyboy on his way home from the movies.

Robert Frost’s poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” is developed as a central motif in the novel. MichaelaTheOutsiders. Outsiders_LP. HSINZ.T2.TG.Outsiders.

Teaching The Outsiders - Some Novel Ideas

I showed "The Outsiders" today. There are so many things that make this day bittersweet each year. First of all, Patrick Swayze is no longer with us. The boys all look so young and invincible in the movie, and now one of them is dead. That's hard to take. But, I digress. As I have previously posted, I use guided inquiry as the base for all of my units of study. 1. 2. After introducing the guiding questions, we do a peer relationships opinionaire. The book can be split up easily: six sets of two chapters. Another great activity to do with this book/unit is a grid activity I've adapted from the wonderful book Speaking Volumes: How To Get Students Discussing Books and Much More by Barry Gilmore (Heinemann, 2006). Tomorrow, we're writing six word memoirs on peer relations, using this book as our guide: Thanks to Anne at Read...Write...Talk for turning me onto this book and activity.

I'll try to post some of these next week, too. S. E. Hinton. Outsiders+UP. Web quest.
