Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today we read more from The Outsiders and discussed the unfortunate situation Johnny has been put in due to the fire. Unfortunately, Johnny has a broken back which has left his paralyzed from the waist down. As a class we discussed why this was so awful for poor Johnny. Due to his injuries Johnny is basically trapped in his parent's home, which is a place of misery for him. We also discussed why Darry cried when he saw that Ponyboy was okay, but did not shed a tear when their parents died. We came to the conclusion that he was not responsible for his parents, but he is responsible for Ponyboy and that makes a huge difference. After reading and discussing the 8th graders were given time to work on their Narrative/Descriptive writing, and I showed them an example of how to format  dialogue in their writing. An example from today has been added to the forms and docs section of the 7th grade page, as well as, below this post. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
