Fourth Quarter: 7. P6 Connections to The Outsiders Due May 16 by 10 p.m.  

Now that you've started reading S.E. Hinton's book, The Outsiders, you can make some connections. 

Think about what you know so far about Pony and the gang. Using a specific quote from the book, make one of the following: 

--a text-to-text connection (how this book reminds you of another book/play/movie)
--a text-to-self connection (how this book makes you think of an event in your own life)
--a text-to-world connection (how this books evokes images or memories of events in real life)

The same text can only be used twice for connections.

List the connection type, then show the text and your personal connection to it.


Text-to-self: When Pony talks about how he likes movies and books so “I can get into them and live them with the actors,” I think of how I’ve always lost myself in books. I’ve always loved reading and living the story with the protagonist.

I've very much enjoyed reading your connections to the text.

Text to Text: “In the moonlight he looked like a Greek god.” In the book Percy Jackson gods can change their look how ever they want and they can be the most attractive person on earth if they choose. This shows how good looking Soda is.

Text to self: "He stared at Johnny in disbelief. Johnny couldn't say "Boo" to a goose." This quote from the book reminds me of my friend who doesn't really know what to do in a sticky situation and doesn't normally defend herself when people ridicule her.

I made a self to world connection with the quote "Things are rough all over." This connects to the real world because it shows how people from every background and every neighborhood and city have it bad. Everyone has struggles, no matter what.

Text to self: I relate to Ponyboy because we both enjoy reading and watching movies. I also relate to him because I am part of a close group of friends.

Text-To-World: In the book, there's a huge divide between the greasers and the socs. I relate this to when discrimination and segregation were big in America. You can tell this by the fact that the greasers and the socs have different hangouts. Also, it tends to get violent whenever the greasers and the socs crossed paths, similar to segregation in past America.

Text -to-World: “Tough and tuff are two different words.” This quote reminds me of how a lot of people say one word that we normally know as one definition, but it actually means something else. Most commonly slang words.

Text-To-World: "Socs were always behind a wall of aloofness, careful not to let their real selves show through." People always are expected to like certain things and meet certain standards that sometimes they can't reach so they pretend so they don't let anyone down.

I made a text-to-world connection in the first paragraph when Ponyboy thinks, "I was wishing I looked like Paul Newman." This is a text-to-world connection because people often wish they were different from what they really are. This includes that people want to change the way they look.

I made a text to self connection with the quote " Things are rough all over. " because it shows how like no matter how someone presents themselves, things can get difficult not just for me, but for anyone.

Text -To-Self; The relationship between Darry and Pony was much in the same as my past relationshp between me and my brother. A quote that represents this is, "Me and Darry just don't dig eachother. I could never please him." Darry being the oldest represents me and Pony never being quite able to connect with his older brother.

Text-to World: "Socs were always behind a wall of aloofness, careful not to let their real selves show through." People are afraid of being judged or humiliated, and that's why they want to fit in with crowd, so they act like everyone else so their personal traits won't be acknowledged.

Text-to-world: The "outsiders" A.K.A. greasers are presented as bad people, most people don't like them and look down on them. This reminds me of how, on the streets, people who are homeless or are poor, are looked down on and ignored, and sometimes treated badly.

Text-To-World: In the very beginning of the book Pony says, “I was wishing I looked like Paul Newman--- he looks tough and I don't.” This reminds me of the world because people often wish they were someone else.

Text-To-World: One event that represents this was blacks and whites back then where racism and slavery were big. It is like this book because there are the rich social ones and the poor unknown ones while in the real world there are blacks and whites and back then blacks were mocked and ridiculed.
