Before students begin reading The Outsiders, they need to have some background knowledge about the references. In this assignment, students research some of the famous actors, writers, and groups in the book - save a picture and gather 3 pieces of relevant information - citing sources.
In addition, students read about and summarize famous books and movies mentioned in the story in preparation for class discussions.
This is a Word document so you can edit it. I uploaded to Google and put as an assignment in my Google Classroom.
