Big Reading Weekend

Happy Friday!

Over the weekend, please read through to the end of chapter 6.

In your journals, answer the following questions:

  1. What does Ponyboy mean when he says, “I was supposed to be the deep one”?
  2. Examine Robert Frost’s poem, Nothing Gold can Stay. What do you think the poem is saying? How might this apply to the characters in the novel?
  3. What “other side” of Dallas is revealed in this chapter?
  4. What’s your own definition of a hero?  Do the three boys prove themselves to be heroes, according to your definition? Explain.

Happy reading!


Mr. McDavitt
