Background for The Outsiders: the 1960s

As background for a reading of S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders, groups rotate through four stations (video, music, website, information) to gather information on the 1960s. In addition, they interview family members about the 1960s and access Lisa’s Nostalgia Café: the 1960s. Because no resources are suggested, you would have to gather all the information for the various stations. In addition, since the book was published in 1967 and depicts 1965 Tulsa, Oklahoma, you would need to caution your researchers to make sure they collect information on pre-1965 people, events, music, film, and television shows.
