A poster highlighting how to draw conclusions and make inferences when reading a piece of text.
What Is an Inference?
As students begin to work on comprehending more complex pieces of text, understanding how to read between the lines is a tricky skill that they may need additional practise with. This skill, otherwise known as inferencing, is a crucial thinking skill that involves making educated guesses based on evidence or information presented, even if it’s not explicitly stated. It’s like being a detective, using clues to reach a logical conclusion.
In teaching terms, it’s helping students understand that when they read, they don’t always get every detail handed to them directly. Instead, they piece together information from the text and their own knowledge to understand things that aren’t explicitly stated.
