                       BODY BIOGRAPHY….

              How Would You Describe a Greaser?

     Throughout our experience reading The Outsiders, we’ve been
exposed to lots of new vocabulary words. Now that you know what
those words mean, pick FOUR words that fit the character you
chose for the Body Biography.

    Write the FOUR words you choose on the biography poster.
Then do some more explaining using the attached paper as your
guide. Split up the four words between you and your partner.
Therefore, each partner will end up using two vocabulary words.

     When you turn in your final copy, it must be TYPED.
It will be glued onto the back of the body biography.

   Explain what the word means as it’s used in the book.
   Explain why this word applies to this person.
   Give examples from the story as evidence that this word applies to the
    person.
   How has this characteristic been demonstrated in real life, stories
    you’ve read, or movies you’ve seen?
