How often have we asked our students to infer a reading selection and no students contribute or offer an answer. Quite often, our students are baffled by this more difficult reading skill. With practice, one can master and become proficient and move along the continuum of the learning process. Good readers infer. I have twelve Inference Task Cards that can trigger critical thinking and can be used as Bell Ringers, Warm Ups, Center Instruction, Small Group Instruction, or whatever you desire. These inference cards can be run off or duplicated. They include a short scenario followed by a question or two for students to ponder and respond to.
