Drawing Conclusions

Drawing Conclusions
Use information
from the text
Use past experiences
Your Literature book states when you "make inferences, you look at the information the author provides to make logical assumptions about what the author leaves unstated."
In other words, read between the lines to figure out what the author isn't telling you. When you do that, you are making an inference or drawing a conclusion
Now let's practice making inferences by watching commericals!
