Students complete this activity to build some background knowledge of the author S. E. Hinton and the 1960s era, before reading The Outsiders novel! The teacher can provide students with information about the author and the 1960s (pre-selected articles) or students can do the entire assignment online.
There is a quiz that goes along with this activity and it can be purchased in my store. It comes in a Smart Response Clicker version or a paper copy version.
***BUNDLE ALERT: This is also sold as part of The Outsiders Progressive Bundle Unit:
