1-1: Think Aloud

Ask learners to read the story with a partner and use the “Think Aloud” strategy. One learner reads part of the story and then tells the other learner what they are thinking as they read. The second learner writes down what the reader is saying. Each learner should read about half of the story. The instructor should model a “Think Aloud” to learners before they begin their reading.

1-2: Foreshadowing

Write these sentences from the story on the board. Ask learners if anyone noticed them during the reading.

What do these sentences suggest? How do they make the reader feel? Discuss the concept of foreshadowing with learners.
