GENRE: Mystery<br /><ul><li>A mystery is a story in which the </li></ul> characters and the reader must use <br /> clues to find the explanation for a <br /> troubling event.<br /><ul><li> In the beginning, the author describes a </li></ul> puzzling situation.<br /><ul><li> The characters in the story try to find </li></ul> out who did something or how it<br /> happened.<br />
  7. 7. STRATEGY: Make Inferences<br /><ul><li> Authors do not always directly tell the reader </li></ul> everything that is happening in a story.<br /><ul><li> Good readers use their own prior knowledge </li></ul> and clues from the text to make inferences, <br /> or draw reasonable conclusions about the <br /> characters and the plot.<br /><ul><li> To make inferences, readers analyze, or think </li></ul> critically about, the characters’ experiences <br /> and compare these to their own experiences.<br />
