An Introduction to The Outsiders

An an introduction to The Outsiders, S.E. Hinton's story of teenage rebellion and angst, eighth graders are asked to write a bell work journal in which they define loyalty. Groups are then assigned a word (patience, unity, appreciation, character, honesty, caring, respect, compassion, gratitude, or courtesy) define the word, and search for pictures they feel illustrate their word. These representations are then displayed around the classroom.
