PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a fun culminating activity to wrap up the novel, The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton? This resource has you covered. Your students will summarize the novel and identify an appropriate theme. In addition, students will also pick out a social issue that occurs within the novel and create a public service announcement that will inform the public of the dangers to this issue. Graphic organizers are included to assist students in brainstorming and elaborating on their writing.
Social issues can include but are not limited to:
• cigarette smoking
• underage drinking
• suicide
• battle between social classes
• poverty
• gang violence
• child abuse
• education - high school dropouts

Graphic organizers and detailed instructions are included to help sequence and plot the progress of this project. You will also receive current events articles on various social issues that are in the novel and a rubric to grade the project.

This project comes in color or as a blackline master.

The Outsiders project was designed and used with my grade 8 small group and inclusion English language arts students.
