Lisa asks…

in the book “the outsiders” what do soc and/or greaser girls look like?

the book is “the outsiders” by S.E. Hinton
***the soc or greaser look must NOT look inappropriate***
in my language arts class we read the bookthe outsiders” and are now holding a contest on who can look like the best soc or greaser. i am a girl, so please tell me what a girl version of a soc or greaser looks like. it’s ok if you only have words, or only have pictures(to tell/show me what a greaser and/or soc would look like). but both pictures and words would be greatly appreciated! please don’t say to look on photobucket or google images,because i already did.
what would the hair style be, the types of cloths, the shoes, etc. of a soc and/or greaser look like?
please help!

A lot of white, long skirts, blouses.

Messy teased hair.


Lizzie asks…

The Outsiders SE HINTON book questions and projects.?

In clear thoughtful words, analyze how Johnny’s actions or observations of others demonstrate an understanding of life beyond his years. Does Johnny use the understanding wisely or not??

Were doing a paper plate diagram and the top plate is supposed to present a theme of the outsiders. Like a previous students put sand paper on half, and smileys on the other half, Which represented the two quotes “Things are rough all over” and “Happiness Can Be Found Anywhere” Can anyone give me any ideas what to do please??

&&We are supposed to draw and image that shows how Johnny moves from “dawn” to “day”, from the poem in the book “Nothing Gold Can Stay” We are supposed to do the same for Dally, with a separate picture.

Those who help me, thank you, it’d be very helpful!!


richmama answers:

Well Johnny didn’t really have a childhood scince he was abused so he had to really grow up and mature. So being through all those situations has given him a new perspective on life and to learn to charish the things you have. Johnny definetly uses the understanding wisely.

And as for your project do some brainstorming its not that hard to pick some themes in the book and reprent them in some way. Pick some qoutes in the book that reprsent a theme and put that on your plate.

Sorry i really don’t know what to say for the last one.

Where to find photos in the similar style to these (The Outsiders)?

I’m doing a newspaper article on the church fire from The Outsiders (my favorite book) for English and I need to find headshot kind of photos for Ponyboy, Johnny and Dally. I have found what I need for Ponyboy and Johnny, but I can’t find one for Dally! These are the kind of effects I am looking for:



Do you get what kind of effects I’m looking for? Thanks so much!

richmama answers:

I’m not sure what sort of quotes you want, but here are some from The Giver.

“The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.”

“For the first time, he heard something that he knew to be music. He heard people singing. Behind him, across vast distances of space and time, from the place he had left, he thought he heard music too. But perhaps, it was only an echo.”

“They were satisfied with their lives which had none of the vibrance his own was taking on. And he was angry at himself, that he could not change that for them.”
