Outsiders Slang

This activity is meant to increase students understanding of specific slang terms used in the novel. It is also designed to show students how language and terminology changes over time. 

Step 1: Have students review slang terms, without giving them any definitions or hints. 

Step 2:​ Students will determine the best possible meaning for each term and write their answers next to the words. 

Step 3:​ Students will share and discuss the possible meanings with an elbow partner.
