Biopoem Project for The Outsiders  in Google Classroom

Biopoem Project for The Outsiders

1. Watch πŸ‘€ the video ☝️ first! The video lesson explains the structure of a biopoem AND shows you a sample I did step-by-step. Do not go rogue; this kind of poem follows a very specific outline!

2. Open the Biopoem outline sample πŸ“and and document πŸ“ƒand split your screen with both ✌️so you do not have to keep switching tabs or going back and forth.

3. Choose your Outsiders character to create your own biopoem. Lines 5-8 need specifics (so don't just list their feelings, fears, accomplishments, and experiences but actually DESCRIBE them--watch my sample video again if you need to).

4. Putting an image of what you think the character you chose might look like underneath line 10 of your poem will get you some bonus points πŸ˜€πŸŽ°

This is ☝️of ✌️ assignments this week for ELA. Do not procrastinate and let it pile up! I cannot wait to see πŸ‘€ which characters you choose!

The Outsiders A to Z Project in Google Classroom

The Outsiders A to Z Project

We are close to being finished with the novel (only 3 chapters left :o). I want you to spend the next few days trying a very special One-Pager called "A to Z". It requires a lot of critical thinking but it can also be really fun and creative! Here is what you will do:

1. For each letter of the alphabet, find ONE word that begins with that letter (you can research sites online or use a dictionary). HERE IS THE CRITICAL THINKING PART: the word HAS to be related to The Outsiders in some way. For example in the letter A it would be APPROPRIATE to use the word angry, but an INAPPROPRIATE choice would be apple, because that cannot be tied into the book at all. You ARE allowed to use character names or places to represent the letters that correspond with those names/places.

2. You will use that word you chose for each letter in a sentence about The Outsiders. APPROPRIATE: Darry was angry that Ponyboy missed his curfew. INAPPROPRIATE: Pony eats an apple.

Is this starting to make sense? BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!

3. The last thing you will do is find a picture related in some way to the sentence you wrote (so for my sentence I might find an image of an angry man).

Please please please PUHHHHLEASE look at the sample ones I did for you on the document. I did the really super hard letters for you because I miss you all :) Email me with any questions. I cannot wait to see your finished products!
