Product Description
Ponyboy can count on his brothers and his friends, but not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids who get away with everything, including beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect--until the night someone takes things too far.

Written forty-five years ago, S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was written. Social injustices can be still seen today as it was when this novel was written.

To complete the initial requirements for the novel the Outsiders, students will need to find a newspaper article depicting a social injustice. Social injustices can be seen throughout the novel as justice tries to prevail between the Socs and the Greasers. Make students aware of such discrepancies that are still written about today,

This activity includes resources to online papers and a template that helps students organize their thoughts before speaking to the audience.

Speech time: 7-10 minutes.
