Do your students insert examples and quotes into their texts without properly analyzing them? Without proper analysis, an essay can sound like a long, drawn-out list written in complete sentences. We teach students to infer and to analyze, but they sometimes forget to incorporate this into their texts and essays.
I have created an “Inference Cheat Sheet” with key inferencing words and phrases to remind students that after inserting a piece of evidence, they need to explain its relevance.
❒ Two different styles of the at-a-glance “Cheat Sheet.”
❒ An inference poster (8.5×11) – as seen on the cover.
❒ Two different styles of letters for an inference bulletin board.
❒ A copy of ALL the phrases used on the Cheat Sheet to create a bulletin board in class.
I hope that this resource will be helpful to students in your classes.
