Product Description
What is background information? Students need to know when authors are using this technique because it sometimes interrupts the sequence of a text. This page will help students understand what foreshadowing, flashing-forward, narrating, and using dialogue are as opposed to background information.

Students will read fiction and/or non-fiction. They will find and record when the author uses/gives background information, they will explain what it is informing them about/of, and they will identify how the background information was given! So, they're studying 5 techniques IN ONE!
Designed for multiple uses, multi-use.
**This is also part of a $2.00 bundle: see my store!
