Students will write a short story using flashback to see if they understand how to use the term.
First, you will explain the definition of flashback. Writers use flashback when they want to reveal to readers something that happened in the past.
For example, writers will have a scene where two girls are talking. Then, one girl remembers something they did at a younger age. Writers will write about that experience so readers can understand the characters. Then, readers can understand what the characters are going through in the present.
After you have explained flashback, then the students will write a short story using a flashback scene and then move back to the present.
When they have completed their short stories, they can submit them to you for grading.
You can grade the students on the correct use of flashback, and on spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, and paragraph structure.
