LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!
This worksheet will allow the students to read chapters 7-9 and independently record the characters' thoughts leading up to the rumble.
As the rumble approaches in chapters 7-9 Ponyboy begins to question the ever-occurring conflict between the Socs and the Greasers. Through his individual conversations with Randy and Dally we, the readers, are given some insight into the purpose (or purposelessness) of a rumble. Readers also get to see why some of Pony's gang fights when he surveys them directly in chapter 9.
