                  The Outsiders – An Extension of the Bookmark Assignment (aka Reading Response)

From your bookmarks, you must use one of each of the three reading strategies: a connection, visualization, and
question/inference to elaborate on and then use it for your Transformed Thought. (That means you have to do a deep
connection, a deep visualization, and a deep question.) This assignment is to be done once a week; therefore at the end
of the novel study, you have completed four bookmark extensions (or reading responses).

On each page, you should have

   o   The date, the chapter and page number(s) that the quote came from (please underline this), and your name
   o   The strategy (connection (and what kind : T-S, T-T, T-W) , visualization, question)
   o   What Happened section: your quote
   o   My Thinking section: your connection, your visualization (you can draw a picture, but you also need a paragraph
       explaining your picture as well), your question/inference. Make sure you explain how this connection,
       visualization, question/inference helped you understand the book better. Be sure to elaborate fully in your
       responses and use evidence from the novel whenever it is possible. Make sure to check COPS before handing it
   o   My Transformed Thought: How have your prior thinking/opinions been changed because of what you have just

(Please see the examples to make sure you’re doing this correctly).
