7th Grade Update by: Ariel O.

This week, we finished reading The Outsiders. After finishing, we then began working on news articles on an important event that happened in the book. We spent the week preparing our newspaper articles which we glued onto a real newpaper. On Monday, we decided to name the newspaper “Tulsa Times”, and we worked for the rest of the day. We had no Language Arts on Tuesday and continued our articles on Wednesday. Thursday we also had no Language Arts because of the Science Fair. On Friday, we dressed up as either a Greaser or a Soc and shared our news articles. We also watched “The Outsiders” movie and ate lots of snacks.

The articles were all about major events in the book, so I did my article about the church burning in Windrixville. This event was one of the most important ones in the book because it led to Johnny’s death, which later led to an even greater series of events. Overall, The Outsiders was an excellent classic that I recommend to all readers.

Check out all of our articles on our blogs.
