7th Grade

Novels in Verse

After completing a study of S.E. Hinton’s classic coming-of-age novel The Outsiders, seventh graders moved into a study of novels in verse. They discussed how these authors are still trying to tell a story, they’re just doing it poetically. However, they also employ many of the same techniques that narrative writers use. To help students see how a narrative story might be presented in verse, seventh graders worked in twelve small teams, each tasked with presenting a single chapter from The Outsiders in rhyming couplets. They were encouraged to incorporate color symbolism and imagery from the novel in their final presentations as well.
