Free Inferring Passage
After creating the fiction inferring resource Making Inferences Reading Passages Differentiated
, I wanted to expose my students to inferring with non-fiction. I chose 11 interesting and influential people and wrote about them in a way my students could draw conclusions and make inferences.
The following influential people are covered in this set:
• Ruby Bridges
• Abraham Lincoln
• Susan B. Anthony
• Amelia Earhart
• Benjamin Franklin
• Thomas Jefferson
• Helen Keller
• Martin Luther King, Jr.
• Betsy Ross
• George Washington
About This Resource
There are 11 high interest mini passages
with 3 differentiated inferring graphic organizers for each.
Because I know how busy teachers are, I have provided a key for each passage.
• BELOW LEVEL STUDENTS:
GIVE THE STUDENTS THE INFERENCE, THEY GIVE YOU THE TEXT ALWAYS MODEL AND ENTIRE PASSAGE FIRST. THEN, HAVE THE WORK WITH A PARTNER, THEN THEY CAN TRY IT INDEPENDENTLY IF THEY ARE READY.
• ON LEVEL STUDENTS:
GIVE THE STUDENTS THE TEXT. THEY GIVE YOU THE INFERENCE. ALWAYS MODEL AND ENTIRE PASSAGE FIRST. THEN, HAVE THE WORK WITH A PARTNER, THEN THEY CAN TRY IT INDEPENDENTLY IF THEY ARE READY.
• ABOVE LEVEL STUDENTS:
THE STUDENT GIVES THE INFFERENCE AND THE SUPPORTING TEXT. ALWAYS MODEL AND ENTIRE PASSAGE FIRST. THEN, HAVE THE WORK WITH A PARTNER, THEN THEY CAN TRY IT INDEPENDENTLY IF THEY ARE READY.
One thing I have found is that if you use the word "because" to make a connection between what the text says and what it probably means, the students aren't as likely to write something that doesn't make sense.
