Inference is important in everyday life as well as in academic tasks. Language students can often have difficulty drawing inference and have even more difficulty explaining their reasoning.
Introducing Inference aims to unmask inference and encourages your students to talk through their reasoning. Students ease into inferring through identifying missing parts of objects identified, sequences where one of the pictures is missing, and predicting and analysing outcomes.
Students learn how to use inferential reasoning by using four sensible steps:
Students are encouraged to use this method of inference throughout the book.
Suitable for ages 6-10, tasks increase in difficulty as they progress.
