Use this clear and simple 'Making Inferences' Graphic Organiser in your Reader's Workshop. This resource has space for students to write the inference made, the 'clues and evidence' and their prior knowledge they used in making their inference. Resource includes one page of 'blank' columns to allow for students to write more if they are capable and one page with boxes to guide and enable students to make a number of shorter inferences about a text.
How you can use:
- Have a whole class focus on either Inferring, Using Schema (what I like to call 'Clues and Evidence' and Prior Knowledge or all three.
- Introduce Graphic Organiser
- Students can complete individually during Independent Reading time
- OR Students can use in a group setting, for example, completing Graphic Organiser about their group text (Reciprocal Reading works great!) and then all sharing their ideas and thoughts.
