Having the ability to recognize implied information, or information that is not directly stated, will help students to make inferences and draw conclusions more effectively. Inferential thinking is a complex skill that uses background knowledge and new information to deepen comprehension. In this mini-course, we will examine strategies to support your grades 3-5 learners in making logical inferences in fiction texts and citing evidence to support their opinions. With the examined strategies, we will choose a mentor fiction text and create a plan for modeling and practicing inferring.
