This PowerPoint includes 10 vocabulary words drawn from chapters 5-6 of The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Each slide includes the word, simple definition, and at least one picture.
Theory to Practice: Research shows that if students can connect a visual image to a word, they are more likely to remember the word and its meaning.
Uses: Print out each slide and post on a word wall. Use PowerPoint to introduce vocabulary words for explicit instruction. Challenge students to come up with their own pictures to represent the words.
