A fun assignment for getting to know the "outsiders" in the novel.
This download includes an assignment sheet with directions and a rubric.
Students are broken up into seven groups, each group being assigned a different greaser for whom they will create a WANTED poster. Students are given a copy of the rubric on the assignment sheet, so they know exactly what is expected. I like to do this activity around Chapter 3/4 of the novel, so students have the opportunity to really get to know the characters and search through the text before getting too deep into the plot. However, this could easily be used at the end of the unit as well.
