The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
Transcript of The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
by S.E. Hinton
Johnny and Pony go on the run afraid of murder charges. Hiding in an abandoned church on Jay Mountain, the boys change their hair to help hide their true identities.
Pony, Soda and Darry are reunited at the hospital, mending Pony and Darry's relationship.
Johnny dies as the result of the injuries he sustained in the fire. His heroic acts saved the children and broke the stereotype of a greaser.
Dally cannot handle the grief associated with Johnny's death and spirals out of control. After holding up a convenience store, he is on the run from the police. They corner him and he aims his unloaded gun at them, drawing their fire. Dally is shot and killed.
Pony learns that not all Socs are the same, just like not all Greasers are the same. He begins to see past the stereotype and break it down, realizing guys are just guys.
Pony finds a letter from Johnny in the copy of
Gone with the Wind
. In his letter, Johnny tells Pony his sacrifice was worth it and to stay gold.
Pony writes his theme for English, telling Johnny's story for all the boys out there who live hard lives. He begins with, "When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home." (Hinton 180).

The socioeconomic clash between the two gangs, the Greasers and the Socs.
Pony and Johnny meet Cherry and Marcia at the drive in and walk them home.
Johnny becomes visibly afraid when he sees the blue mustang and Bob's rings.
Johnny and Ponyboy fall asleep in the vacant lot. When Pony returns home at 2 in the morning, Darry hits Ponyboy for being so thoughtless, and Pony runs away.
Pony is jumped on the way home from the movies
by a group of Socs.
Ponyboy and Johnny are attacked in the park by Bob, Randy and a group of Socs. Bob is drowning Pony in the fountain, so Johnny stabs Bob to save Pony's life.
Dally arrives with news and treats the boys to lunch at the local Dairy Queen. When they return to the church, they find it on fire with some children trapped inside.
Johnny and Pony go into to save the children. Pony makes it out safely, but Johnny is severely injured sustaining a broken back and burns.
Johnny is in critical condition, and might not survive.
A rumble has been scheduled for that night between the Greasers and the Socs. Randy tells Pony he will not fight at the rumble. The Greasers win the rumble. Dally and Pony go straight to the hospital to tell Johnny the news.
At the court hearing, the charges are dropped and Pony is allowed to stay under the custody of Darry, keeping the Curtis boys together.

Statement of instructional purpose and usage scenario:
This presentation is intended to review the plot structure of S.E. Hinton's novel,
with my 8th grade English class. I have designed the presentation to be used as a review with the class as a whole.
Pennsylvania Common Core standards

Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to the characters, setting, and plot; provide an objective summary of the text.
Describe how a particular story or drama’s plot unfolds in a series of episodes, as well as how the characters respond or change as the plot moves toward a resolution.
Analyze how complex characters develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
"It seems like there's gotta be someplace without Greasers and Socs, with just people. Plain ordinary people" (Hinton 48).
"Dally didn't die a hero. He died violent, young, and desperate, just like we all knew he'd die someday" (Hinton 154).
Remember, the exposition always introduces
the main characters, setting and main conflict.
While in hiding, the boys read, play cards and talk about life.
