One literary skill needed for better story comprehension is identifying and analyzing foreshadowing techniques used in literature. This Smartboard lesson is all you need to teach this concept. Students can take notes about techniques used, see models, practice the skill, and then apply to own reading. Slides model ways foreshadowing is used in stories: some general and easily understood while others may be more complex through the use of symbols. One slide also explains and models "red herrings" and how they may be used in mystery stories to throw the reader off. This is an excellent lesson to teach the skill of foreshadowing.
