Description

In this lesson from ReadWriteThink, students are introduced to examples of flashbacks and flash-forwards through the film "The Sandlot" and/or illustrated books. Students are then asked to create a story that contains both flashback and flash-forward. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.
