Are you looking for resources to help your students with their inferencing? Try Inference Investigators by Lori Stedham first. You can purchase this on Teachers Pay Teachers. This lesson is an extension to her lesson, which my students LOVE to do! I usually begin with introducing the inferencing 'formula' - take what you read, hear, or see and add it to what you know to equal your inference. Practice with commercials and riddles. Then I introduce the Inferencing Investigators by Lori Steham where I plan for two 50 minute sessions. After solving these scenarios I have my students, staying in their same collaborative groups, write their own scenarios. This is the lesson plan and rubric. I hope your students enjoy this lesson as much as mine did! This can be used as an assessment if desired.
