What is this:
This product is a word picture for each of the chapter of the novel The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. I chose pasted the words from each chapter into a word cloud. The words that are mentioned the most are emphasized by being shown larger. Black/white and color versions are both included as JPEGs. Color so they can be displayed on walls or Promethean boards. Black & White so they can be copied for student use.
How I use these in my classroom:
Before reading each chapter I project the day’s chapter on my Promethean board. I have the students infer/predict what the chapter will be about based on the most used words in the chapter. After the chapter has been read, I have the students discuss the words. I ask them if they feel like any other words should have been emphasized more.
