Teach your students about the meaning of inferencing with a song!
What Is an Inference?
Are your students beginning to learn about inferencing? Teaching students how to use this active reading strategy can be a bit tricky for young learners! Let’s take a quick look at what an inference is and why it is an important reading comprehension skill!
An inference is the process of using evidence or information presented to draw conclusions, make educated guesses, or reach logical deductions, even if it’s not explicitly stated. In the classroom, it’s teaching students to analyze text, identify clues, and use their prior knowledge to understand implicit meanings or make predictions about what might happen next. By teaching inference skills, students become more engaged readers, critical thinkers and better understand the deeper layers of written material beyond the surface level of information provided in the text.
