Making Inferences Sentence Starters
Product Description
How do I do it?
When asking and answering questions about literature, language learners may need support to cite the specific evidence that supports conclusions or inferences. After reading a text, the laminated frames can be used as a whole class model and a volunteer can fill in the blanks with dry erase marker or individual students can use the frames when working in a small group or in pairs. They are a good tool to scaffold speaking and writing in literature discussions. The larger text size can make it easier for language learners to utilize the tool.

Variations & Extensions
Students can create their own answer and question frames for one another. Students can record the questions and/or answers on another sheet of paper or strips of paper. The strips can be rearranged by students or teacher into an essay or paragraphs after a 3 - 10 answers have been collected. If sentence strips are used, then a pocket chart would be a great tool for rearranging them. Additional transitional sentences can be written to flesh out the arguments provided by the answers.
