When a narrative goes "off topic" or the setting didn't actually change because it was only in a "flashback," do your students understand why? Well these pages and a few of my other products can help!
This product works best for once these techniques have been taught or for when students are very aware of them. If you are needing a product to teach these techniques beforehand, see my store for other "Flashback, Foreshadowing, and More products." I have a bundle and an orginal, best seller!
Note: If you purchased my other product, the reference page in this product is a duplicate:
Use these pages to get students studying and reflecting-on the following authors' crafts/techniques: sequencing, foreshadowing, flashing-forward, developing background information, and flashing-back. IN addition, students will reflect on other techniques that authors use such as dialogue, narration, and MORE!
Students will read any text [chapter/short selection] of your/their choice, log the events/details/facts, make check-mark choices that help them to reflect on the sequencing, the author's techniques that were used, how they were used, and then students will explain their understanding of the techniques' affect(s) on the chapter/selection [prompts are built in].
Designed for multiple uses, multi-use. Use with fiction/non-fiction narratives/non-fiction. This is a very flexible document! See my Facebook page, Reading Response Creations for related postings and products.
Flexible use options:
-use in class and/or at home [one log is for signatures; one is without]
-use with the whole class and/or small groups
-use for lit. studies/book studies/novel studies/lit. circles
-use for remediation
-use for independent reading/SSR/DEAR
-use to supplement ANY reading program
-use with longer or shorter texts or both
-use as part of an independent project or HW packet
-use to supplement short stories/narratives from teacher purchased books or on-line resources
-use to link reading to writing: perhaps students need to study these crafts then make them present in a writing assignment!
Students will understand texts better by knowing what techniques the author is utilizing!
