This is a packet of critical thinking questions for the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. I used this when I taught 7th and 8th grade language arts during small reading groups. The questions are a mixture of text dependent questions and questions that require students to make personal connections to their reading, an important skill middle schoolers do well with. Every three chapters are grouped together which makes this a nice independent activity for students to complete. Simply print and use!
