Gallery Walk
What does the boy think when the car starts?
When inferring readers say things to themselves like, " I predict, I know this because, I think..."
What does it mean to infer?
Copy Down the gold!!!

You even infer when you
watch a commercial!
You make inferences everyday, most of the time without even knowing it.
Making Inferences
*Using background knowledge to help you understand something.
*Using clues in the reading
(and pictures) to help you understand what is happening to create meaning for the text.
*Inferences can help us make predictions about what is going to happen in a text.
We are going to take a "walk" around the art of Norman Rockwell. In your notes write down what you believe is going to happen, and why you believe it is going to happen. Please give at least two specific reasons.
What does the grad think his gift is?
Inference- is an idea or conclusion that is drawn from evidence, reasoning and past experience.
Let's practice!
Readers and observers use evidence also known as textual support to explain their answers
Every year, Americans use over one billion sharp objects to administer healthcare in their homes. These sharp objects include lancets, needles, and syringes. If not disposed of in puncture-resistant containers, they can injure sanitation workers. Sharp objects should be disposed of in hard plastic or metal containers with secure lids. The containers should be clearly marked and be puncture resistant.

The paragraph best supports the idea that sanitation workers can be injured if they

a. do not place sharp objects in puncture-resistant containers.
b.come in contact with sharp objects that have not been placed in secure containers.
c. are careless with sharp objects such as lancets, needles, and
syringes in their homes.
d. do not mark the containers they pick up with a warning that
those containers contain sharp objects.

For the videos, draw your own conclusions.
