I've used this PowerPoint personally to introduce Inferences to my students. It follows the Texas Literacy Initiative gradual release of responsibility strategy instruction. It includes an anchor lesson, explicit instruction on what an inference is and how it is used to deepen reading understanding. It is then followed by guided instruction and then the students get a chance to make inferences on their own, using excerpts from Harry Potter. Students will have opportunities to do several Think-Turn-Talks and a Quick Write at the end of the lesson.
