Product Description:

Focuses on the core comprehension strategy of drawing inferences. To find a version of this lesson for grades 2-3, or grades 4-5, simply copy and paste the lesson title (without the grades specified) into the Scholastic Teacher Express search box! This lesson moves through the six steps of the gradual release of responsibility instructional model (Pearson, 1985): 1. explicit explanation 2. modeling 3. coaching 4. guided practice 5. independent application 6. self-assessment and goal setting

Grades 6 - 8

Like predicting, drawing inferences is an Author & Me QAR, requiring readers to use text information to guide them as they seek relevant ideas and information from their heads. Readers draw inferences “to arrive at a decision or opinion by reasoning from known facts or evidence” (Fountas & Pinnell, 2001, p. 317). Their decision or opinion comes from their heads, but it is constrained by clues from the author!
