Greaser/Soc Journalism

Activity based on book written by S.E. Hinton

Write an article from the point of view of either a Greaser or a Soc about one of the two following events:

    • Johnny's stabbing of Bob
    • Johnny and Ponyboy's rescue of the children in the church fire

Create a catchy page with an imaginative title and check for spelling and grammar. Remember to look in the text, Chapter 4 and Chapter 6 for useful information to include and influence your article.

Below are audio versions of Chapters 4 and 6. Feel free to listen to them to help inspire your page.
