Themes in The Outsiders What is a theme? A theme is a main idea or

an underlying meaning of a literary work, which may be stated directly or indirectly.

Things are rough all over. Nothing gold can stay. Change will

come, so its best to hold on to what you value in life There is honor even among the

lawless. Bravery comes in many shapes and sizes.

Communication is better than violence. Violence always has negative consequences.

You decide how to survive or thrive in the harsh realities of life.

No matter how different we are, we all watch the same sunset. We have something in common.

Everyone may feel like an outsider at times. Growing up is hard, but its good in

the long run. Stereotypes can cause problems.

What other themes could we find in the novel?
