PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need to add non-fiction into your unit on The Outsiders? Ready to make modern-day connections with engaging videos and discussion?

Use this 2-3 day lesson connecting literature and modern articles to assess CCSS SL.2 and SL.3 in your ELA classroom. Themed around topics like empathy, prejudice, stereotypes, race, and biases, the videos and corresponding questions ask students to think critically about the what the theme of the novel might be.

Though I used this activity as a pre-reading introduction to my unit, it can be used at any point in a novel unit on The Outsiders. (Technically, it could also be repurposed for any novel that has similar themes, including Wonder!)

In this EDITABLE doc from my “Nonfiction about Lit” series, ask students to watch all three videos OR assign students to articles (jigsaw-style) to differentiate your instruction.

This 9-page download includes:
• Clearly marked standards
• Hyperlinks to 3 current TED talks
• 7 questions per video that are “text-dependent”, asking students to identify main ideas and evaluate the strength of his or her argument
• A synthesis activity asking students to compare the 3 videos and connect them to the novel
• A bonus page asking students to connect the videos to 5 specific quotes from the novel
• An answer key

(For an IN-DEPTH PREVIEW, check out my FREE Non-fiction Activity for The Giver!, which has similar features!)

**Copyright Note: To protect the copyright of TED and its speakers, no video clips, transcripts, or chunks of text are included in this download – just the links to view the videos directly from TED. I also have no endorsement from, or affiliation with, TED.
