Bearstone by Will Hobbs uses many great examples of foreshadowing. This activity asks students to identify some of those examples in the novel. We start by discussing the definition of foreshadowing, which is provided for the students at the top of page one. The students then read four different passages from the book and identify which events from the novel those passages foreshadow. The last question asks students to think about why authors use foreshadowing. I usually have the students work on this individually first, then they meet in small groups to share and compare ideas.

All of the items I share on TPT are ones I actually use in my middle school classroom. Most have been revised multiple times based on "test runs" with my students. I work hard to make information accessible to students in a fun and simple way while still challenging students to meet and exceed their abilities. Most of my assignments can be used with all ability levels; differentiation comes in my expectations of what individual students or groups can achieve. Many of my activities can be used with individual students or cooperative groups.
Thanks for looking at Middle School Reading Room!
