Product Description
This is an activity designed to be used as an introduction to making inferences and writing analysis. I typically use it before going into a Mystery Unit where students will be asked to identify elements such as foreshadowing and symbolism in text. In other words, they will be asked to look closely at the text (close reading) and make inferences based on what the characters are doing or what the author is stating.

This activity requires them to understand the difference between facts and inferences. It also helps them identify foreshadowing and red herring characters. They then have to write a claim statement and support their statement with evidence from the Scooby-Doo episode watched in class. Yes, the beginning works of analysis writing - supporting with evidence.

Students begin by watching a short Scooby-Doo episode where they are identifying foreshadowing, setting, and red herring characters. While they are watching they are filling out the Scooby-Doo worksheet keeping track of their "evidence".

When complete, evidence is discussed as a class and students are expected to use the evidence in a short analysis paragraph.

Students love the narrative aspect of this activity, but don't leave out the discussion they need to have with partners. It is imperative (especially for inclusion classrooms) that students have a chance to discuss their ideas and whether they make sense.

Enjoy and if you have any questions let me know!
