Hello! Thank you for looking at All I Want for Christmas is to Learn and Practice How to Inference.
This lesson was designed to teach students how to inference, provide examples of inferencing and graphic organizers and scenarios to practice the ability to inference all around a Holiday Day theme.
Slides are as follows:
Slide 1 – Title and Information Page
Slide 2 – 'How to Make an Inference' Christmas / Holiday Poster
Slides 3-5 – 'Examples of Inferences' Posters – Holiday / Christmas Theme
Slide 6-8 - 'You Make the Inference' Posters – Holiday / Christmas ThemeSlides 9-15 – Inference Scenarios all around a Christmas / Holiday Theme – 4 scenarios per page.
Slides 16 and 17 – Graphic Organizers to Facilitate Inferencing.
********** My 'posters' are one page posters that are print and go. For my students, I buy 8.5 x 11 picture frames and put the mini-posters in them. I keep them in a file drawer and pull them out year after year. I keep them out on my table for my students when they are working on scenarios.
I designed this lesson because not only do most of my students have goals and difficulty with inferencing, but also to develop the ability to identify problems and possible solutions, analyze and integrate information, select significant information as pertinent to the topic, use inductive and deductive reasoning and make contributions in group discussions.
In addition, my students require development to use previously acquired world knowledge to derive meaning from inferences spoken in language. For the scenarios, the students must use background knowledge and world knowledge to infer the answer from the linguistic statements and the students own knowledge.
