The Outsiders-Novel Vocabulary

The Outsiders-Novel Vocabulary

Author: Megan Trimble

Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words or phrases based on grade 8 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies.

Use context (e.g., the overall meaning of a sentence or paragraph; a word's position or function in a sentence) as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.

Verify the preliminary determination of the meaning of a word or phrase (e.g., by checking the inferred meaning in context or in a dictionary).

Students will use context clues and other vocabulary strategies to determine the meanings of vocabulary terms used in The Outsiders by: S.E. Hinton.  Students will review the terms, practice appropriate usage and function of the terms in sentences, play review games to help memorize the meaning of the terms, and ultimately test their knowledge with an end of novel vocabulary AOL.
