Transcript of Copy of Foreshadowing, Suspense and Flashback

Foreshadowing,
Suspense, and
Flashback

George looked down at Sandra as she lay on the soft
grass. It was another beautiful day at Jefferson Park. He
had brought her here for their first date, and he'd stood
just where he was, watching as she set down her bags and
kicked off her shoes. She had reclined back, shaded her
eyes, and looked up at the clouds. Her voice was shakier
now, her hair grayer, but she was still his Sandra.

What happens in this story's flashback?

A. George brings Sandra to the park for their first date.
B. George admires Sandra's shaky voice and graying hair.
C. George and Sandra, a married couple, are on a picnic.
D. George reclines on the grass and looks up at the
clouds.
Quick Review
Were you paying attention?

It was a dark and cold winter morning. Jim and his brother, Carl, waited impatiently for the school bus. Carl chewed on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
"I hate going to school," Jim said. "You never know what might go wrong during the day. We might have a pop quiz or be attacked by the school bully."
Carl finished the last sandwich bite and moved on to a thermos filled with chocolate milk. "It's a lot more fun in my class."
"Sure," Jim said. "It's because you're in kindergarten. Everything's fun in kindergarten."
The bus arrived. Both boys walked onto it and separated to find their friends. As Jim sat down next to his best friend, Mike, he noticed something.
"Hey, my lunchbox is really light."

I took one look outside my bedroom window and saw the drab, gray, dreary sky. I pulled the coverlet up over my face, trying to hide from the morning. I knew that I could no longer put off the dreaded task. Today, everyone would have to know my hideous secret.
