Product Description
Students will understand foreshadowing IF they have to identify it in their novels/short-stories. Students need to know when authors use this technique because it makes readers better predictors and authors use it to build suspense and to create wonder! Use this recording page to help students find, record, and explain the foreshadowing that occurred in your/their text of choice. Designed for multiple uses, multi-use.

Students will record the definition, read ANY fictional/non-fiction-narrative text, state what the foreshadowing was about, copy the quote, and explain WHY it was foreshadowing.
Flexible use options:
-use with mysteries, suspense, adventure or ANY other genre that uses this technique
