### Inference no 1

1. 1. Inference<br />MEC Team 7<br />
2. 2. Learning Success Intentions Criteria<br />We are learning to understand what ‘Inference in Reading’ is.<br />We will be:<br />Defining what inference is.<br />Looking at examples of what this means in reading.<br />Practising inference skills in an activity.<br />
3. 3. Writers often tell you more than they say directly. They give you hintsor cluesthat help you "read between the lines." Using these clues to give you a deeper understanding of your reading is called inferring. <br />When the meanings of words are not stated clearly in the story, they may be implied - that is, suggested or hintedat. <br />What is inference?<br />
4. 4. Inference is just a big word that means a conclusion or judgement. If you infer that something has happened, you do not see, hear, feel, smell, or taste the actual event. But from what you know, it makes sense to think that it has happened. You make inferences everyday. Most of the time you do so without thinking about it.<br />Inference<br />
5. 5. Imagine you are sitting in your car stopped at a red signal light. You hear screeching tires, then a loud crash and breaking glass. You see nothing, but you infer that there has been a car accident. We know that these sounds almost always mean a car accident. But there could be some other reason, and therefore another explanation, for the sounds. Perhaps it was not an accident involving two moving vehicles. Maybe an angry driver rammed a parked car. Or maybe someone played the sound of a car crash from a recording.<br /> Making inferences means choosing the most likely explanation from the facts at hand. <br />For Example<br />
6. 6. Being a detective.<br />Readers take clues given by the author/writer to come up with conclusions about a what is going on.<br />Inference is like.....<br />
7. 7. This bag contains different items. Use them as evidence to practice your inference skills by investigating each item making conclusions about ‘my house’ from them.<br />My house!<br />
