If you've ever used the "Focus On Reading" series for teaching reading and language arts, you already know what a powerful teaching tool this series can be in your classroom. This document includes all of the vocabulary words from the "Focus On Reading" guide for The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. The words are designed as tiles that can be printed, laminated, and posted on your classroom bulletin board as each section of the novel is taught. They can also be used as a classroom activity. Provide a copy for each student, have them cut them out, and then write out the definitions on the back of each word to use them as flash cards for studying.
