Transcript of The Outsiders Questions
You Only Live Once!
Why do you think that this has become such a popular and over-used phrase? What is this message trying to tell people? Do you use this acronym often? Why or why not?
Ponder these questions:
Do I tend to hang out with people who have the same interests as I do? Do I hang out with people who live in the same neighborhood as I do? Do I hang out with people who dress like I do? Do I hang out with people who can afford to do the same things as I do?
Out of these four questions, how many did you answer yes to?
Nothing Gold Can Stay
By Robert Frost
Completely answer the following questions in your Chrome Book. Title the document "Card Game" with your name and hour. Share this with Mrs. Kasper.
What number were you? How did this experience make you feel? Does this type of stereotyping happen in the real world?
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
You can think of this as the beginning of spring after the long winter months. Think of all the things that gold can mean (beauty, worthy, wealth...) The first sight of green is golden.
Nature's first green (gold) is the hardest color for nature to keep. Nature is also given a human and female persona... 'her', 'hold'
In the spring time, plants
Only for a short time are the blossoms present. They soon turn into leaves.
Leaf falls to leaf.
The first leaf is better than the ones that proceed it. Soon the tree is covered in leaves. These leaves are not as important/beautiful/breathtaking as the first leaf.
"The "so" at the beginning of the line means "just as," which means that in line, the speaker is comparing mankind's fall from the Garden of Eden to the change from gold to green he described in the first half of the poem.
Just like the flowers subsided, or were downgraded to become leaves, Eden also sinks. This refers to the biblical fall of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. When Eve ate forbidden fruit, she and Adam, and all their descendents, were forever punished by being banished from Eden."
Dawn is golden and more beautiful and shorter than the day.
Nothing beautiful, new, great, and wonderful can last forever.
We know nothing can last forever; therefore, we must appreciate those wonderful moments that happen in our lives.
Is Robert Frost telling us YOLO? Maybe it's not such a new phrase after all!
