“pop-up” cabin designed to be built in a single day – ep 1
Ponyboy wasn’t expecting the judge’s hearing to go as well as it did. Except for Pony, no one was able to tell the judge what happened that night; Pony was just asked about his personal life. The judge takes everyone’s evidence into account, acquits Pony, and dismisses the lawsuit. At home, however, things are not back to normal. Pony is having a tough time at school and is clumsy and forgetful. Darry’s fighting returns as he continues to chastise Pony for not finishing his homework. Pony has lost all interest in life, and getting through each day is a challenge for him.
Pony, Two-Bit, and Steve walk down to the gas station for lunch one afternoon. Two-Bit and Steve enter, and a carload of Socs arrives, three of whom exit. Pony is unaffected; he isn’t frightened or upset. The Socs suspect him of killing Bob Sheldon and begin pursuing him. “I’ve had about everything I can handle from you guys,” Pony says calmly as he breaks a bottle and threatens to “split” them if they don’t get back into their car. Pony gathers up the shattered glass while the Socs flee.
This is going to be hard
1. Socials vs. Greasers—was a rivalry between the wealthy and the poor on both sides of town, and the Socials felt they were better than the Greasers, but they soon discovered that things were worse on both sides of town.

2. Dally vs. The World- Dally and the world were at odds because he believed the world was out to get him.

3. Pony vs. Darry- Pony and his brother were at odds because Darry had to be a father figure while Pony only wanted to be a child.
Lesson 2 (low resolution)
4. Pony vs. Pony- This was an internal struggle between Pony and himself as he tried to find out who he was.
1. The greasers won the rumble, which ended the feud between the Socials and the Greasers.
Since the Socialists left the Greasers alone, the dispute was resolved.
2. The conflict was not resolved during Dally’s lifetime because he had given up on life and wished to die.
3. Pony and Darry’s feud was settled when Pony ran out of the house and they forgave each other because Soda was tired of being in the middle of fights all the time.
4. The dispute between Pony and himself is resolved at the end of the book when he reads Johnny’s note and tells him to remain golden.
It’s also settled when he learns he’s not like the rest of them.
We ran out of steel at the worst time! / log cabin
We spoke about two scenes from The Outsiders: Soda’s expression of being caught in the middle and Pony’s reading of Johnny’s letter and his reaction to it. Both are part of the novel’s upbeat, constructive ending. Ponyboy isn’t going to start hanging out with Cherry at school (Socs and greasers aren’t exactly BFFs), but both of these passages show Ponyboy coming out of his slump after the deaths of Johnny and Dally. “By the end of the book, Pony feels a sense of closure 1.) with his family relationships, 2.) with the traumas of Johnny’s and Dally’s deaths, and 3.) with his dedication to being emotionally accessible,” says one thesis point. You are not expected to write a “five paragraph essay” based on this thesis or collection of topics.

War stories: the outsiders create headaches for wwe *and
Empathy, or the desire to see something from another person’s point of view, is key to the resolution of The Outsiders’ gang and family disputes. The preoccupation of the two gangs with their rivals’ appearance and social status highlights the superficiality of their shared animosity, which thrives on stereotypes and discrimination. Certain characters, on the other hand, are able to see beyond the stereotypes. Cherry encourages Ponyboy to see Socs as individuals as she befriends him at the drive-in and maintains that “things are rough all over,” and he begins to doubt the gang dispute. By sharing information about Bob’s troubled life, Randy further forces Ponyboy to feel sympathy for Socs as individuals. Ponyboy, in the end, takes on the task of explaining the two groups’ common humanity by writing his English essay, which turns out to be the book. Sodapop, a member of the Curtis family, assists Ponyboy in realizing that Darry’s high standards for Ponyboy stem from Darry’s affection for Ponyboy and willingness to provide Ponyboy with a better life. Finally, their newfound respect for one another, coupled with a desire to save the bereaved Sodapop needless suffering, leads to a vow to stop fighting.
