Teach your students the Slang Words and Phrases from the novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton to enhance comprehension and understanding of the plot as well as the time period the novel is set (Oklahoma 1950s).
This activity can work for BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER reading.
Two graphic organizers are included; each make it easy to teach students the definitions of slang terms used throughout the novel. The first graphic organizer is a fun way to prepare students for the novel by having them guess the meaning of each slang word before telling them the actual meaning. The second graphic organizer is a great way to review the text during or after reading as it includes the quote and chapter number where each slang term is used. Answer keys provided.
Also included is a Powerpoint presentation that contains all slang words or phrases with their definitions.
