This is a full unit plan for The Outsider by S.E. Hinton. It includes an Introduction that explains my reasoning behind each of the lesson plans and the materials I used. It includes a full calendar for a three week unit. It is adaptable to ANY time frame and ANY classroom. In the Intro, you'll see I designed the unit with a very specific Grade 8 class in mind. There are 3 lesson plans that include worksheets and handouts. I have also included a final project with a prompt, and outline, and a rough sample of what I expected of my students. It is also aligned with ELA Standards. Please feel free to change it up however you need to.
NOTE: One part I could not include was the Character Map for the "What a Character!" lesson plan. I will provide it as another item.
