Reflection: Checks for Understanding Flashback and Foreshadowing - Lesson 3 of Cinder Book Two - Section 3: Independent Work


As students are reading along with the text, I monitor what they are doing by circulating around the room noticing what they record on their sheets.  It is always eye opening to see what stands out to them.  

Today I am watching for their reactions when the story gets to a point where I have previously identified either flashback or foreshadowing.  I should see students recording page numbers, etc. on their reading circle sheets.  Depending on the level of the class, I may stop the audio to ask if they noticed certain points and review with them on the spot.

It is powerful to help them make the inferences that come from flashback and foreshadowing in a text in which they are invested.
