because of known facts or evidence
When a reader combines clues from the text with their own background knowledge in order to draw conclusions
What it Is...
A logical conclusion
An educated guess
A way to fill in missing information
What it Isn't...
It is not stating the obvious
It is not a prediction
Observation is what you see
