But teach inference we must, because inference is a “foundational skill” – a prerequisite for higher-order thinking and 21st century skills (Marzano, 2010).
•Introduce the essential skill of making an inference with this resource. Teach students to read like a detective, looking for text clues and using their schema to infer a deeper understanding of the story the author wrote. Tell students that the author doesn’t always state things directly in the text, so good readers must use text clues + their background experiences (schema) to figure out something beyond the author’s written words.
•Use the anchor chart and a mentor text to think aloud and model:
text clues + schema = inference.
•The interactive notebook page can be used to make another inference from the text or use a different mentor text to guide students through the thought process of making an inference. Students can cut the 3 shapes and cut the 3 doors for the flap booklet. Glue in an interactive notebook or make a “Steps to Making an Inference” poster. Write down responses for each step of the process under each of the 3 flaps.
•Use the 6 passages for additional practice, a think-pair-share, or as an assessment.
