This teaching resource includes two projects to use with The Outsiders following chapter 6. Both projects will assess your students' ability to summarize information from the novel as well as include creative writing skills. Graphic organizers to help plan, support, and elaborate on writing as well as a rubric are included for each assessment.

This resource includes:
• Church fire writing piece
→ Students will create a news report detailing the events surrounding this important part of the novel. They will include important information, background information and quotes from characters.
• Tulsa Times writing assessment
→ Students will choose one of four choices to write about. Choices include the church fire (however this is different from the above assignment), the Curtis brothers, the Greasers vs. Socs, or the killing of Soc Bob.

These projects were designed and used with my grade 8 small group and inclusion reading and English language arts students.

Projects come as a blackline masters A rubric is also included to assess student work.
