  1. Today we will make inferences using evidence from text and prior knowledge Inference= to figure out something based on evidence Evidence=to make something clear Text=anything written or printed

  2. Text Text is anything that is written or printed. You will find text in newspapers, books, billboards, and magazines to name a few.

  3. Evidence In many cases, police use evidence to convict criminals when they have broken the law. They must have evidence or proof that the criminal actually committed the crime. In America, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. They must be proven guilty with evidence!

  4. Look at the picture above. What do you think just happened? Why do you think that the girl on the pitching mound is upset? You’ve just used your inference skills!

  5. Looking for clues in written text Although the words were not used to describe the picture, you were able to look at the clues and base a decision on what was happening in the classroom. Now, we can do the same with written text.

  6. Read the sentence or paragraph that you are looking for inferences. • Look for evidence of inference • Use your mind and think about what you already know. Use your logical reasoning! • Base your conclusion or make your inference! • If necessary, reread the passage!

  7. Let’s use our steps to inference! • Read the sentence or paragraph that you are looking for inferences. • Look for evidence of inference • Use your mind and think about what you already know. Use your logical reasoning! • Base your conclusion or make your inference! • If necessary, reread the passage! "...Nicholas was thinking of the last time he and his dad were alone together. They had gone to the beach a few days before he left for Iraq and held hands as they walked down into the surf. The water was freezing, and his dad picked Nicholas up so he wouldn't get the bottoms of his pants wet. Nicholas felt like Superman, flying above the ocean civilization, held up by his dad's strength and his dad's love." What can you infer about the way Nicholas feels about his dad? Nicholas does not care about his dad Nicholas and his dad love each other Nicholas does not truest his around water Nicholas wants his dad to be a surfer What is your evidence?

  8. Let’s use our steps to inference! • Read the sentence or paragraph that you are looking for inferences. • Look for evidence of inference • Use your mind and think about what you already know. Use your logical reasoning! • Base your conclusion or make your inference! • If necessary, reread the passage! Tommy stares at the skateboard through the window of the skate shop for weeks. After his dad refuses to buy the skateboard for him, Tommy gets a job so that he can buy it himself. What can you infer about Tommy? A Tommy is serious about getting the skateboard and will work hard to do it. B Tommy is heartbroken and has given up all hope of getting the skateboard. C If Tommy does not make enough money at his job to buy the skateboard, he will steal it. D Tommy will lose interest in the skateboard a few weeks after starting his job. What is your evidence?

  9. Let’s use our steps to inference! • Read the sentence or paragraph that you are looking for inferences. • Look for evidence of inference • Use your mind and think about what you already know. Use your logical reasoning! • Base your conclusion or make your inference! • If necessary, reread the passage! "Karina dropped off her things, then ran back to the beach to her lifeguard chair. She climbed up and took her position for the day, where she would watch the resort’s guests frolic in the water and look out for any potential danger. Some days she would grow bored, watching the same people do the same things over and over again. The job was quite repetitive, but she received steady pay, something that allowed her to continue living on the beautiful island." What can you infer about Karina’s job? What can you infer about how Karina feels about were she lives? What is your evidence?

  10. Let’s use our steps to inference! • Read the sentence or paragraph that you are looking for inferences. • Look for evidence of inference • Use your mind and think about what you already know. Use your logical reasoning! • Base your conclusion or make your inference! • If necessary, reread the passage! "Just as Karina turned on a small portable fan to cool herself, someone began yelling in the water. Karina immediately jumped off her chair and ran toward the shore. She soon realized the person was yelling 'shark.' Her stomach dropped. She had never experienced a shark sighting before but knew that she should get everyone out of the water. Even though people were already swimming and running toward the sand, she began to pull people out of the water and assisted young children who couldn’t move quickly enough. All the while she kept her eyes on the blue waves but didn’t see any sign of a shark." What can you infer how Karina felt when she heard some one scream “Shark” What is your evidence?

  11. Let’s review what we learned • Read the sentence or paragraph that you are looking for inferences. • Look for evidence of inference • Use your mind and think about what you already know. Use your logical reasoning! • Base your conclusion or make your inference! • If necessary, reread the passage! • What are the steps to making an inference in texts? • What is text? • What is evidence?

  12. Read the sentence or paragraph that you are looking for inferences. • Look for evidence of inference • Use your mind and think about what you already know. Use your logical reasoning! • Base your conclusion or make your inference! • If necessary, reread the passage! Closure Activity What can infer about how Maria about Rowdy? What is your evidence? What can you infer about how Maria felt at the end of the story? What is your evidence?
