This is a lesson plan created to get students into the novel. We will be analyzing the 1960’s and social stigmas through music artists presented in the novel. We will be connecting the music to the idea of Greasers and Socs and to the social norms of the time. Handouts of the music lyrics and the historical background are provided.
NOTE: This lesson plan can be split up into two days worth of information and can be adapted to fit any classroom.
