The Outsiders explores the hearts and minds of a gang with no voice, telling the story of class conflict between the lower-class “Greasers” and the upper-class “Socs” (short for “Socials” and pronounced “Soshes”) in 1960’s middle America. The universal themes transcend both time and location. In this excerpt from early in the novel, the Greasers learn that the rival Socs have viciously attacked a gang member, Johnny.

This app provides a robust multimedia lesson centered on The Outsiders (S.E. Hinton, 1967). Using this app, students can read an excerpt from Chapter 2 of the novel, view a video lesson modeling a student discussion of the text, and write a thoughtful response based on a writing prompt. Teachers may also allow students to participate in a peer review of their writing, with an accompanying rubric.
