Hello Stacy, I am so glad that I found your inquiry unit on The Outsiders online. I am a 9th grade teacher from Canada and I am teaching The Outsiders for the first time. Could I have your permission to base my unit on yours and use your handouts? I would give you full credit and would appreciate any advice you could give on inquiry based teaching. I have just read Jeffrey Wilhelm's 'Engaging Readers & Writers with Inquiry and feel strongly that this is the way to go. Your unit has reinforced the elements in his book and I am very excited about teaching this novel. You have great ideas and activities that I would like to share with my students. Kindest regards, Carolyn

Hi Stacy, I am so glad that I found your site and unit on The Outsiders. I am a 9th grade teacher from Canada and I will be teaching The Outsiders for the first time. I have just recently been introduced to inquiry based learning and Jeff Wilhem's recent book. I would like to ask you for permission to use your materials from your unit. I would give you full credit. I will have to adapt some things to fit the grade 9 curriculum, but I would like to base my unit on yours. If you are willing I would also appreciate any advice that you can share about inquiry based teaching. Thank you for posting your unit online and sharing your experience with others. You have fantastic ideas that can benefit many teenager's lives. Carolyn
