This is my unit on The Outsiders. It is my first time teaching it, but it went pretty well. The analysis essay asks students to close read Chapter 3 and annotate. I've also provided 3 claims to choose from for the essay, but I allow them to pick their own too. The rubric for the essay is included. There are also two quizzes and the overview of the whole unit so you can see dates. This is the timeframe that I actually used.
