St. Lucie West K-8 School students in Ms. Scavone’s 8th grade Gifted English Language Arts class have been reading “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton during Literature Circles. While reading, students have been focusing on learning about characters’ Point of View and completed a character chart during small group time. Each character chart included Point of View, an analysis of symbolism while citing textual evidence and identifying character traits. SUPER JAWSOME, SHARKS!
