Use the classic story "The Utterly Perfect Murder" by Ray Bradbury to teach your students about theme, flashback, and foreshadowing.
This follow-up reading lesson includes:
*synopsis of the text
*theme with cited text examples and explanation
*flashback with cited text examples and explanation
*foreshadowing with cited text examples and explanation
This lesson works well as a whole class text analysis, model story for gradual release, or study resource.
Check out my my other resource for "The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant" to use in addition with a short story unit.
