Students work with pages from The Outsiders to create a thematic statement about "reputation". There are different pages in this document-- each is a different page from the book that students can work on to create a thematic statement. Black Out Poetry is fun for the kids, and they look at it as a challenge and a way to be creative, too. We did this earlier in the year, and then brought it back for this novel, and the students were elated! They love this activity.
