This download has 8 pages. Each page contains a court case involving one character from the novel The Outsiders. There are questions to quide the students in taking their juvenile through the steps of the juvenile justice system. The students will need to act as the Judge in the court cases by deciding the sentences, if any are given out.
*There is a graphic organizer included in the first 2 pages of this download. Each student in the class should complete this activity on his/her own before being assigned a court case.*
**I suggest only using this activity if your class is reading The Outsiders in LA. I used this in my Social Studies class, but I could have also done it in my Language Arts class when Social Studies was studying the Juvenile Justice unit.**
