A comprehensive unit plan for The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. This unit plan has been developed to align with the Common Core and be rigorous and rewarding for students. Emphasis is placed on central questions that guide the unit plan. In addition, there are non-fiction text sets that reinforce key issues from the novel. Students read these non-fiction pieces to further understand central themes and also to draw parallels to life today.
These 8 Figurative Language Posters are a great way for you to introduce different types of figurative language and can also be displayed in the classroom and used as a reference for your students. There is a poster for each type of figurative language including similes, idioms, metaphors, hyperbole, alliterations, personifications, and onomatopoeia, as well as a title poster that says Figurative Language. Also included in my Figurative Language Unit for 4th/5th grades! (TpT Resource)
