The Outsiders

The 7th grade is preparing for The Outsiders unit. They will discuss life during the 1960’s including music, The Civil Rights Movement, gangs, education, and social mannerisms. Students will have a chance to dress up as a Soc or a Greaser (two major groups in the book) at the end of the unit.

S.E. Hinton, the author of The Outsiders, was only 17 years old when she published her first book. Even though the book was written in the 1960’s, Hinton creates characters that our 2017 students are able to connect to and empathize with.
