This PowerPoint presents background information for The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. This should be shown to students before reading the book or seeing the movie, The Outsiders. The presentation will introduce students to the author, the story, the characters and the setting. As you show students the presentation, it's helpful to point out the political turmoil that existed in the sixties. Also discuss the different styles of music, fashion and cars, identifying the differences between the socials and the greasers. One way to use the presentation is to remove the captions and see if students can identify the different pictures.
