Monday, October 17th

Today in class, I collected your Writer’s Notebooks to check for Writer’s Workshop Bend 1 organization/structure and content.

We read Chapter 3 of The Outsiders and discussed some common themes that are emerging in the novel.

  • Divided Communities
  • Empathy
  • Preserving Childhood Innocence

We added some evidence from Chapters 1-3 into our theme chart. This chart will be on-going throughout the rest of the novel!
