Inferencing is a skill that is used in all aspects of our lives.
Its not just for English class!
Using song lyrics to teach inferencing has many benefits:
* Students love music- especially when they get to listen to music in class.
*It deepens comprehension.
*It promotes meaningful discussion.
*It teaches students to cite text evidence to support inferences.
*It targets multiple skills: theme, drawing conclusions, understanding vocabulary,
especially multiple meaning words.
