Interpreting and Using Red Herrings

With our Interpreting and Using Red Herrings lesson plan, students learn how to identify and interpret red herrings in writing and how to use them in their own writing more effectively.

Category: Tags: ,

Our Interpreting and Using Red Herrings lesson plan teaches students strategies for identifying and understanding red herrings in writing as well as using them in their own writing. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to rewrite a fable to include three red herrings, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material and strengthening their writing skills. Students are also asked to read statements and identify whether they refer to an intentional or coincidental red herring.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and interpret red herrings as they are used in stories and other text and give examples of red herrings and their meaning.

    How Kind and Convenient!

    I'm building lesson plans for edTPA focused on a mystery unity with third graders. I downloaded the Red Herring lesson plan and even though it was geared toward 5th grade, I was able to use a lot of the materials (like questions to ask during our classroom discussion). Thank you very, very much!
