4th 9 Weeks Extra Credit Opportunity

Choose ONE of the following projects to complete for extra credit by Wednesday, May 17.

There are 20 available extra credit points (silver). You will receive points based on level of effort. You will not score more points than someone who put in more time than you.

  • Create a playlist of songs for each chapter (12) from The Outsiders that is reflective of the themes, setting, and plot. Make sure you include song title and artist. On a separate sheet, write in complete sentences your reasons for choosing each song.
  • Create a timeline of events from The Outsiders using either copy paper or a poster board. See me if you would like some butcher paper. Include at least 10 main events. Illustrate at least 5 of the main events – either your own or from the internet.
  • Pretend you are the costume designer for a theatrical production of The Outsiders. Draw accurate costumes for at least 5 characters of your choice. Each drawing must be on copy paper and in color. Provide a sentence below the picture telling which scene the costume will be worn for.
  • Make a diorama or model of a scene from The Outsiders.  A diorama is a three dimensional picture that is usually put into a shoebox or other small box.  Use descriptions from the book to make the diorama or model accurate.  Be creative and use necessary resources to make the diorama come to life.  Include a paragraph that explains the scene your diorama or model represents – you can put this on an index card on the back of your box.

Attach your work to the extra credit assignment in Google Classroom. If you need to physically turn something in, make sure it is turned in by Wednesday, May 17.

**YOU MAY NOT TURN EXTRA CREDIT IN FOR LATE POINTS. EITHER TURN IT IN ON OR BEFORE THE DUE DATE OR NOT AT ALL**
