Inferences

Hmmmm??
A Joe Fasen Enhanced Powerpoint Presentation
What is an
inference anyway?
To infer is to take a close look at
what you are reading and then
picture in your head what is
happening.
While we are reading,
we are picturing the
story in our head and
asking ourselves
questions about what is
going on.
We find clues in the story and can
make decisions based on what we
know from our own lives
For example, look at this cartoon…
First let’s
consider Lucy.

What do we
see?
By reading the
picture, we can
see how the
author drew her.
What do
we know?
We know that
when people
look like that,
they are usually
angry.
We can infer that Lucy is

Angry.
What do we
read?
We read that
Lucy sighs and
then says “Youth
never listens.”
What do we know
in our heads?
We know that
Lucy is a “youth”.
We also know that
when someone
says that someone
“never list...
Because Lucy wouldn’t want to
insult herself, we can infer that
Lucy thinks she is more

Mature
than Linus and Snoopy.
What can you infer from this picture?
What can we infer from this passage?
She stumbled down the road, not sure what
made her car veer like that. The water was
...
Can you infer what just happened
to the woman?

Can you infer the setting?
Good! Now you know!
Good readers visualize, question, and
make judgments about what they read.
