Product Description
After you have finished reading the timeless novel of S.E. Hilton’s The Outsiders and were taken to the world of Ponyboy, SodaPop, Darry, Dally, Steve, Two-Bit, and of course… Johnny *tear*, students will write a literary analysis paper determining which theme is most prominently shown throughout the book.

S.E. Hilton uses many topics in her novel to express the hardships and relationships among her characters and among teenagers in general growing up in the 1960s. However, those themes are still present and can be seen today. That is very important to remember.

The student's job is to write a literary analysis essay explaining how one of these topics is portrayed in a theme in The Outsiders. This packet not only gives instructions on the 4 ways to determine theme, but also gives a brief outline of each theme for the students to discuss and decide. I have also given my sample essay that I wrote with my students as a guide.

My students wrote their very first paper using this, and they did very well! Good luck!
