This is a critical thinking quiz for Chapters 1-4 of The Outsiders. There are 5 short-answer questions, each with at least one sub-question. Each question references at least one page number and requires rereading. Here is one of the questions:
Why does Ponyboy, who has never had any desire to use weapons, calmly threaten the Socs with a broken bottle? Why does he pick up the glass afterwards? (171, 172)
The pages follow the Speak (Penguin) 2008 version of the book, which is the current available edition. I usually require students to write at least five sentences per question, using information from the book. These questions always yield rich thinking and answers from my students!
