Despite the Greasers’ reputation as heartless young criminals, they live by a specific and honorable code of friendship, and there are many instances in which gang and family members make selfless choices. Same with the Socs; there are events in this novel where they act brave by helping others. For a final essay you are going to answer this question: Which characters in The Outsiders could be considered heroic? Include your own definition of hero in the essay and be sure to explain how each character, in his/her own way, meets your definition. You will support your ideas with evidence from the novel.
As you read-annotate.
Keep track of the heroic attitudes, actions, and thoughts of each of the characters.

Language

The names Dally and Darry are spelled almost the same;
so you want to try not to get these characters confused.
Dally is a troubled greaser; Darry is Ponyboy's older brother.
They are both Greasers, but very different people.
