7th Grade Students Perform Scenes from The Outsiders

During Reader's Theater students dramatized selected scenes from the novel, selecting music, costumes, props, and a backdrop to complement their performances and bring the pages of the novel to life.

Students worked in groups to bring selected scenes from The Outsiders to life. They rehearsed the scenes, planned for music and sound effects, created digital backdrops, and made props.  The classroom was transformed into a small theater.  

After the performances, students used Google Forms to submit their choices for The Outsiders Academy Awards.  It was a fun and educational way to enhance students' comprehension of the plot, conflict, and the characters' motivations in the famous novel.
