The Outsiders: Introduction
Purpose: Determine what creates a person's identity. Are we assigned identities by other people or do we create our own identities? Can you change your identity or will it remain the same forever?
Purpose for Reading
Reflection 1
The Outsiders
As we read The Outsiders, you will work toward finding an answer to these questions.
Insider
Outsider
At your team whiteboard, list as many words that come to mind when you hear the words "insider" and "outsider."
Who are you? What is your identity?
Describe yourself
How would a stranger describe you?
How would your friends describe you?
Are you an insider or an outsider?
East Side
Poorer than the Socs and middle class
Almost like hoods
Blue jeans, untucked T-shirts, greased-back-hair

The Greasers
Ponyboy
Darry
Sodapop
Johnny
Dally
Steve Randal
Two-Bit


Your post must include:
Character name
Photo posted by character
Photo caption
Hashtag
A comment from another character: use a quote from the text!
Your character's response to the comment.
Character Instagram!
Today, Social Media plays a huge role in teenagers' daily lives. A photo and a caption allows you to send a message to the world. Your Instagram account is an expression of your identity, how you view yourself and how the world views you.
With your team you will create an Instagram post for a character from the novel. The post MUST be school-appropriate and accurately portray the character.
Reflection 2
In a family and a group of friends, everyone has a role. For example, Darry's role is to take care of his younger brothers.

What is your role in your family or group of friends? How do you feel about your role? Was it assigned to you or did you choose it?
Gallery Walk
Reflection 4
"That's why we're separated," I said. "It's not money, it's feeling-you don't feel anything and we feel too violently" (38).
Is it better to feel too much like a Greaser or nothing at all like a Soc? Defend your answer with at least two examples.
Have you ever made a mistake that seemed small at the time, but later had significant consequences? Write about what happened and how you felt. How did this mistake impact your identity: how you see yourself and how others see you.
Reflection 5
Poster Presentation

1. Take 2 minutes to decide how you will present your poster to the class. Everyone must speak!

Who is your character?
What did he post and why?
Explain your captions, comments, and hashtags. Share any quotations your group included.

Gallery Walk
1. With your team, visit every poster. Go counterclockwise!
2. Write ONE comment, ONE question, and ONE suggestion on your group's post-it and stick it on the poster. Do this for every poster.
***You may write your comment/question/suggestion as if YOUR assigned character wrote it.


You don't always agree with your friends. Write about a time when you disagreed with something your friend did or said. Describe the situation. Did you stand up to him/her? Why or why didn't you? How did you feel and how did they react?
1. With your team evaluate each poster.
2. On your group post-it write:
1 Comment (something you like)
1 Question (about their post)
1 Suggestion (be constructive!)
3. Post your post-it on the poster (at the bottom or sides-NOT in the middle)
4. Move to the next poster when you hear the chime!
Gallery Walk Group Reflection
1. Collect the post-its left on your poster.
2. Read the comments, suggestions, and questions together.
3. Write a one paragraph group reflection about what you learned from the feedback you received from your peers.

Grade your project. We deserve a _/14 because..
Each bullet is worth 2 points.
One mistake can change your life. In Chapter 4, Johnny makes a mistake that changes his.
Reflection 6
Write about your trademark-something that makes you, you. If you had to change it, explain how you would feel without it.
How are you like Ponyboy?

"It was my pride. . . . Our hair labeled us Greasers, too -- it was our trademark. The one thing we were proud of. Maybe we couldn't have Corvairs or madras shirts, but we could have hair" (71).
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.
Ponyboy first alludes to a work of literature in Chapter 1, when he compares himself to Pip from Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations. Ponyboy identifies with Pip because he, like Pip, is orphaned, impoverished, and struggling to make sense of the world. Additionally Ponyboy and Johnny put special emphasis on Robert Frost’s poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” which helps them understand that growing up and facing reality is a necessary part of life. Finally, Johnny likens Dally to a Southern gentleman in Gone with the Wind. Having this idealized vision of Dally makes Johnny able to understand him.
Reflection 6
So far we have seen a change in most of the character's attitudes and actions. Darry shows he is sensitive, Johnny is brave, Dally has a soft side, and Cherry wants to help the Greasers.
Given what you have learned about the characters, who do you most relate to and why? Who do you most admire?
Make a list of the main characters and create an allusion from each. Remember, an allusion is a reference to a piece of art, literature, myth, or person.
Ponyboy: Pip, Great Expectations
Dally: Southern Gentleman, Gone with the Wind
Youth: The Garden of Eden, The Bible

Sodapop:
Johnny
Two-Bit:
Darry:
Steve Randal:
Cherry:
Bob
Allusion: A direct or indirect reference to something historical, literary, religious, or mythical. Allusions can help people see unique connections between two ideas. The reference can help the audience better understand a subject.
We have been introduced to several allusions. Ponyboy compares himself to Pip, Dally is compared to a Southern Gentleman, fleeting beauty is compared to the Garden of Eden.
Welcome back. Please get out a sheet of paper and wait quietly.

Character:
Allusion
Explanation
"Nobody would write editorials praising Dally. Two friends of mine died that night one a hero, the other a hoodlum" (154).
Eulogy: (n) a speech or piece of writing that praises someone or something highly, typically someone who has just died.

Eulogy: (n) a speech or piece of writing that praises someone or something highly, typically someone who has just died.

Write a eulogy for Johnny from the perspective of one of this friends.
Dally was described as a hoodlum, a menace, and a criminal. When he died, only the Greasers would miss him and remember him.
During the rumble and at the hospital, we are in Ponyboy's head. We see the events through his eyes.
Using what you have learned about Dally, rewrite the rumble scene OR the hospital scene from his, Dally's perspective.
Please stand by the whiteboards. We are switching seats.
Unit Essay
Prompt 1: Are we assigned identities by other people or are we in charge of our identities? Choose a character from the novel to defend your answer.

Step 1:
Choose a prompt. Write it down.
Prompt 2
I relate to Sodapop the most.
We are both the middle child.
"He can get drunk on a drag race or dancing without ever getting near alcohol...He gets drunk on just plain living" (8).

We are both happy-go-lucky and truly enjoy living.
"Dropout" made me think of some poor dumb-looking hoodlum wandering the streets breaking out lights – it didn't fit my happy-go-lucky brother at all. (2.39)
We both get bored easily.
"Soda had this buckskin horse, only it wasn't his. It belonged to a guy who kept it at the stables where Soda used to work. Mickey Mouse was Soda's horse, though" (39).
We are both judged for a decision we made that other people don't respect/understand.
"It's just… I can't stand to hear y'all fight… Sometimes I have to get out or… It's like a middleman in a tug o' war and I'm being split in half… We're all we've got left. We ought to be able to stick together against anything. If we don't have each other, we don't have anything." (12.51)
"Finally, even Sodapop got tired of the reporters-he gets bored with the same old thing after a time" (101).
We both love animals that aren't really ours.
