  • For tomorrow finish The Outsiders Chapter 1 & 2 comprehension check. It must be handed in tomorrow. (students were given a large amount of time to work on it during class.)

Today we finished chapter 2 of The Outsiders! We had a class discussion regarding four different points in this chapter: 
  • The difference between a gang and a pack, and furthermore the difference between the greasers and the hoods.
  • Why does Cherry admire Dally?
  • The way the greasers treat one another- this sparked an interesting discussion 
  • How are women portrayed? AND is it ironic that the author is a woman and wrote the book when she was 16?
