PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

Grab every eye in the room with this gorgeous 42-slide Prezi that provides all of the background information your class will need as you launch your study of S.E. Hinton’s classic novel, The Outsiders.

The presentation includes a quickwrite topic that will help make The Outsiders’ characters and themes relevant to your students (15 minutes for writing and discussion). Then, launch into the 30-minute lecture which covers S.E. Hinton’s background, the time period and setting, brief profiles of 11 important characters from The Outsiders, conflicts/themes, and teen culture/lifestyle in the 1960s. The package also includes a quick partner game on teen slang from the era and a link to a 7-minute video tour of Tulsa with information about the filming of The Outsiders hosted by S.E. Hinton herself. (Note: The Outsiders video clip on slide #42 includes spoiler info, so I always show it AFTER we’ve finished the book.)

A fresh alternative to Powerpoint, Prezi allows presenters to “zoom” to their next slide and the modern design captivates a young audience. Students love the Prezi style and beg me all the time to make more of them. You can check out Prezi for free at www.prezi.com. I also have two free Prezis at my teacher store, if you want to take a look. You don’t need any special equipment or software to use Prezi. If your computer can view a YouTube video, then you can enjoy a Prezi.

Prezis run on both SMARTBoards and regular classroom computers with projectors.

Click the “Preview” button at the top of the page to take a closer look at The Outsiders intro. Prezi. I hope you enjoy this fresh approach to lecturing that’s sure to keep your students’ attention.

Note: Due to the “zoom” animations, this zip file is large. The download will take a few minutes, so please be patient. When you get the folder, open it and launch the “Prezi.” Just ignore the other items; they’re needed to run the show. Your computer will ask if you want to “open” the web-created file. No worries; there’s no virus, so just open and enjoy. For full-screen viewing, be sure to click on the small icon in the lower right-hand corner (just like on YouTube).

Thanks for stopping by!
