If your students love music, they will enjoy this lesson! I use it while teaching The Outsiders, but it would work with other novels as well. In this activity, students will listen to or watch the song "Youth of a Nation" on YouTube. Next, they will read the lyrics in small groups and answer the guiding questions using text support. In the last part of the activity, students will make connections to the book The Outsiders. Included in this document is the lyrics, graphic organizer with questions, and answer key. Enjoy!
