7th Grade The Outsiders
Exciting things are happening in 7th grade. Last week we started reading one of the GREATEST novels ever written for young adults… The Outsiders. Did you know that S.E. Hinton wrote this novel about things she saw during her time in High School? Did you catch that? SHE!!! Yes, S.E. Hinton was a girl and she was awarded a publishing contract for this book during her graduation ceremony. Have your students fill you in on some more interesting facts they learned about her and the time this novel was written.
We will be doing most of the packet work for this novel in class, which means the students will have to do most of the reading at home. While reading, I ask that they also work on the given vocabulary words for each chapter. Not only will there be comprehension quizzes, but vocab quizzes as well.
If you have not read this novel, I recommend you do so with your child. It is not only a great way to start conversations with you child, but it is also an amazing story!
