I wanted to share this great poster with you all. Drawing conclusions and making inferences are essential skills for students to develop. Each of these skills require students to fill in the blanks left by an author.
Students must learn to put the pieces together to understand the whole message or story the author is trying to convey.
Essential pieces to putting the puzzle together include:
- Thinking about personal experiences
- Using clues from the text
- Thinking about what is known about the character
- using clues from illustrations.
This chart helps students visually with each piece of the puzzle!
Let us know what your favorite ways of teaching students how to draw conclusions and make inferences.
