Instructional Ideas

  • Allow learners to pick one or two extension ideas according to their preferences
  • Create handouts to go with the discussion questions so that pupils can note down some ideas before speaking
Classroom Considerations

  • This is a brief resource, but a nice start for planning a unit around The Outsiders
  • One of the questions in the graphic organizer is a bit vague, so you'll want to read over it and clarify the question's meaning for your students
Pros

  • The discussion questions go beyond recall and require higher-level thinking
Cons

  • None
