Making Inferences: Uncovering Hidden Meaning and Constructing Thoughtful Response In The Secondary ELAR Classroom

Making inferences and drawing conclusions is one of the foundational skills of the secondary ELAR classroom and a life skill students will need to be successful as a reading, writing, and critically thinking adult. Students need to be able to make inferences when reading as well as select and evaluate text evidence to support responses.

In this workshop, we will collaborate to:

  • Explore the connection between comprehension and inference
  • Learn strategies to support students make different types of inferences so they can persevere through rigorous academic texts and self-selected texts

Participants will have time built into the workshop for planning in order to incorporate the strategies learned into lesson plans.
