This is an activity to be completed at the start of the novel, The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, as an intro activity. Students will read and analyze Robert Frost's poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay." They will identify literary elements like theme, foreshadowing, and make predictions about the text based on the poem.
You can slip this activity right into your own plans, or assign it as homework. If you want assessments for the entire Outsiders novel, check out our "Full Unit Assessments" package.
