Product Description
Print this packet and GO!

I created this Outsiders Unit plan with 8th grade CC standards in mind. The unit plan can be printed and handed out on the first day of the unit, or printed out day-by-day. It is fully editable and also includes an additional character chart at the end that I don't use in my classroom, but in my English Lab.

Summary writing
Close Reading
Movie Trailer Analysis
Character Growth
Charting Plot
Theme Analysis
Poetry Analysis
Paired passages

Each chapter focuses on different skills for 8th grade. You will not find loads of reading comprehension questions in this packet - what you will find is plenty of guided notes, close reading of multiple important passages from the unit, space for students to explore analogy writing, theme analysis, and to explore how authors use tools like symbolism and foreshadowing to develop a story.

If you like my work, you may also like the review project my students do for this unit: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Outsiders-Group-review-project-2020405

I also have a second paired poetry text here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Outsiders-We-Real-Cool-Poetry-Paired-Text-2047860

I developed this unit and use it in my own classroom. I revise it yearly and hope that you enjoy it as much as I and my students do!
