This product is a PowerPoint presentation entitled: What Makes You, YOU!. Each slide contains a personal connection type of question (7 in all) that relates to the novel. The PowerPoint could be used in three ways:
First, it could simply be used as an activity (to be used with the novel within the first few chapters). The teacher could use each slide as a discussion point.
Second, the teacher could laminate each slide and place them around the classroom. The students could break into small groups and circulate the classroom reporting to each station for a minute or two to discuss the topic on the task card.
Third, these topics could be used as writing prompts for a journal to be completed while reading the novel.
The PowerPoint has a introduction slide explaining the procedure. Each slide is created with a "denim" background to relate to a Greaser.
