Are you working on an Outsiders unit? Use this list of activities to deepen your middle schoolers' understanding of the novel. After reading S.E. Hinton's novel, young readers work on three required activities, including participating in class discussions. Different categories of activities, such as comparing the Socs and the Greasers to groups in their own school and writing detailed descriptions of characters, help to extend their comprehension and literary analysis.
