Think-Like a Disciplinarian: The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton
Think Like a Disciplinarian
An academic disciplinarian is an expert in a particular field of study. Disciplinarians teach, conduct research and publish their findings in peer-reviewed scholarly journals. They may also be experts in an applied field, where they use their expertise to perform specialized tasks rather than conduct basic research. Many disciplinarians have expertise and collaborate with others in different disciplines.
Students break into expert groups based on interest. As the class reads the novel, the expert groups assume the perspective of the expert, take notes, conduct research, hold discussions and plan a project.
