This film guide is intended to be used after reading the novel, The Outsiders. It works for either edition of the film, whether the original theatrical version (90 min.) or complete novel edition (113 min.) depending on the kind of analysis you want for your students.
The questions are designed to meet the Common Core standard RL.8.7: "Analyze the extent to which a filmed or live production of a story or drama stays faithful to or departs from the text or script, evaluating the choices made by the director or actors."
Part 1 is meant to be completed while watching the film, and asks students to look for similarities or differences they notice between the movie and novel. Part 2 should be completed after the film, including questions that analyze and evaluate choices made by the director.
