This week we will be starting our new novel, The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. The students will have an opportunity to examine the novel from many different views. We will conflict, characterization, point of view, theme, foreshadowing, and vocabulary. Students should be reading the novel each night and marking book logs, being careful not to read ahead of assigned reading.

Tuesday - read chapter 1
Wednesday - Describe 5 characters and predict the role each might play; use textual support; read up to pg. 26
Thursday - Complete character analysis
Note: All 7th grade students should have completed and turned in their project for The Giver!
