Information and Conversation for 8th graders

The Outsiders October 28, 2011

This week students began a novel study unit on The Outsiders, by S. E. Hinton.

Themes of the book include friendship/peer relationship, cliques, honor, and social class.  In my humble opinion, this book is perfect for 8th graders!  It’s become very clear to me that after just one chapter, many of my students are making very strong connects to characters and events.  Stay tuned for more information regarding this novel study and other upcoming classroom events.
