Product Description
This product is a 9 page packet in PDF format ready to print and use. I use this lesson with my seventh grade students when we read the novel, The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. The assignment is a persuasive essay in response to the poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay" as found in the novel.

It begins with a warm up activity (aka "Sponge" activity) where the teacher would read the children's book, 'I Wanna Iguana" and students would record evidence and reasons on a graphic organizer. Please note, this product does NOT come with this book. I use a Youtube.com free video of the book in my classroom.

Then, the student receive the essential question: Do you agree with Robert Frost that gold can stay?

There is a two page outline which guides the students as to the information to include in each of the four paragraphs which will make their essay. There are two pieces of lined paper to write the final copy. There is also a rubric attached which assesses students on the information in the essay on the bases of "below, at, or above grade level". Lastly, there is a sample essay.

Again, I use this with seventh graders but could be used with any grade level reading "The Outsiders". I hope this is helpful to you!
