Welcome to The Outsiders Literature Study Self-Paced Class! In this class, we will venture back to the 1960s and look at life from the perspective of a society very different than ours.  The Greasers and Socs are rival gangs, Paul Newman is the envy of every boy and makes all the girls starry-eyed. A tough, honest look at life in a gang and the realities of life on “the wrong side of the tracks”.  Students will not only read the book in this class, but will tasked with exploring stereotypes, examining characteristics in themselves and others, exploring their own ideas about events in the story, exploring the idea of lost innocence, to name a few.  

*This class is limited to students age 13 and up.  The Outsiders was written in the 1960s when the author was a teenager and is loosely based on real-life situations at the author’s high school at that time.  There are themes, situations, and language in The Outsiders that are only suitable for students age 13 and up.

Topics covered in this class include, but are not limited to:

  • Settings
  • Conflict
