In the past few weeks we have been reading the Outsiders for our Identity unit. The book ties in with the theme of the unit, "How do we shape and form identity?". The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton is about two groups of people, the socs and the greasers, fighting. Their identities affect how they act, who they hangout with and how they feel. In 7th and 8th grade we are learning a lot about ourselves, and reading/discussing The Outsiders.
