Product Description
Making inferences is often described as reading-between-the-lines or making appropriate assumptions. As a writer, it is purposeful and artful—a way of using subtle details to “show not tell” your reader what’s going on. This worksheet is designed to help students make “reasonable” and “evidence-based” inferences. Students will read 10 short excerpts and then fill-in-the-blanks (with their own answers, which will vary) to practice making inferences and using academic language.

Part 1 explores "outlandish" versus "reasonable" inferences, and Part 2 explores "no evidence" versus "evidence-based" inferences.

An answer key is provided; however, the answers will vary widely from student to student. The key is merely a collection of sample responses. This worksheet would be great to use prior to a class discussion where students could explain/defend their individual inferences.
