PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Outsiders Unit | Outsiders Plan | Outsiders Resources

The following is a comprehensive unit plan for The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. This unit plan has been developed to align with the Common Core and be rigorous and rewarding for students. Emphasis is placed on central questions that guide the unit plan. In addition, there are non-fiction text sets that reinforce key issues from the novel. Students read these non-fiction pieces to further understand central themes and also to draw parallels to life today. There is also a weekly Socratic Seminar held as part of this unit plan. This seminar provides students a time to work on their speaking and listening skills while they discuss key parts of the book and the larger issues that are often related. Student assessment is primarily informal in this unit – the emphasis is not on tests and quizzes, but rather on discussion, journaling, reading, and writing.

You'll receive:
A detailed unit plan with rationale and instructions, daily activities that span the entire unit, electronic copies of all supplemental activities and articles, student handouts for replication, thought-provoking discussion questions that will evoke critical thinking, and engaging writing activities to use in your classroom.
