  • Sadlier Unit 2 test Friday 10/14
  • Hello 8th Grade Families,

    Today we reviewed last night's notes and moved onto reading more from The Outsiders. We discussed how there are two character with similar names (Dally and Darry) who act VERY different. We decided that S.E. Hinton probably did this on purpose as a form of juxtaposition. This is when two things that contrast each other are placed together. Dally is the gang member who has no boundaries, and Darry is the father type character who protects and worries about his brothers. 

    Best,
    Mrs. Baier
