In the beginning of the story the main character, Ponyboy, introduces himself as well as the problems. This is the exposition because exposition is when the setting, characters, etc. are introduced.
A group of Socs pulled up in front of both Ponyboy and Johnny and they had almost drowned Ponyboy. This is ONE rising action because it soon lead to the climax.
Johnny then stabbed Bob, the main Soc, for self defense after trying to drown Ponyboy. This had the rest of the group run off. This is a rising action because it than lead to the climax.
After the church incident and Bob's killing, both Socs and Greasers planned a skin rumble, where they would lose both their friends. Dally and Johnny. This is the Climax because this is the most intense part in the story.
After the rumble, they had a court case to attend. It was really nothing and nothing changed after. This is the falling action because things were now beginning to tie together.
Ponyboy's grades were dropping so he had the opportunity to bump it up by writing a theme. Thinking about the people that surround him and who he cares about, he wrote about his life story and the difficulties he goes through. This is the resolution because everything was now coming to a close end.
