Students need to identify and analyze the usage of flashbacks in stories. In this Smartboard lesson, students can take notes on what flashbacks are, look at models to see examples, learn why writers use flashbacks, and identify key words that signal a flashback. Many examples are given right from literature for students to analyze. Using the Smartboard, you can underline text that implies a flashback and then discuss why it was used. This lesson is all you need when teaching about flashbacks in reading.
