This worksheet helps students analyze Robert Frost's poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay" and connect it to The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. This activity starts with the text of the poem and questions to help the students understand and explore the text. Then, on the next page, students are asked to make text-to-text connections between the poem and the book. Finally, they are asked to make a text-to-self connection between the poem and their own lives.
