Product Description
One of the biggest challenges in teaching students to drawing a conclusion is getting them to understand the difference between a detail (something directly stated in the text) and a conclusion (an inference you make based on details from the text). A further difficulty comes when you are teaching teenagers and pre-teens (who are often cranky) as you get conclusions like “A conclusion I can make about Bob is he sucks because this story was dumb.” The Dream Vehicle project is about to change all that. Students will not only learn how to make positive conclusions about other individuals or characters, but will be using their own creations and those of their peers as practice.

The set up for this project takes 30 minutes to an hour, but can also be introduced in class and assigned for homework. After the initial set up is done, the practice can be done daily and takes anywhere from 7-10 minutes (I used it as a warm up each day).

With your purchase you will receive the guidelines and instructions, all handouts, and samples of completed projects for classroom practice.
