Transcript of Module 1: Intro to Read Strat - Inference & Predictions

So what is an inference?
Inference is also sometimes referred to as
So inference =
The text

(this can be a visual, speech, video, or anything we interact with)
we judge or interpret the text in our head.
Practice 1
: In your notes make a list of 1-5.
When I click to an image, write down what you are inferring to be happening in the situation & predict the outcome and then explain your answer in 1-2 sentences based on the clues you see in the image. DO NOT share your answers until I say so!
Finding an inference in a text...
One morning during my first week of high school, I walked down to breakfast. My mother took one look at my clothes and said "Are you wearing THAT to school?"
What is the mother implying based on what you can deduce from her dialogue?
If you guessed that the child/teen was probably dressed improperly, you guessed correctly!
Let's Infer what happens in this video!
Directions: Write the questions in your notebook. Then, as you watch the film, answer the questions by predicting and making inferences.

1. Why does the dog get upset with the owner and girlfriend at one point?
2. Why does the man get really depressed?
3. Why does the dog decide to help?
4. What does the dog finally "agree" with?
5. What is the purpose of the meatball?

1. Why does the dog gets upset with the owner and girlfriend at one point?

2. Why does the man gets really depressed?

3. Why does the dog decide to help?

4. What does the dog finally "agree" with?

5. What is the purpose of the meatball?
Because he had been getting all the junk food he wanted until the girlfriend changed things and served "healthy" food.
The man and the girlfriend had a break-up so he became depressed and began eating all the junk food again.
The dog realizes how unhappy his master is so he decides to go get the girlfriend back to make his master happy again.
That he has to eat his dog food and be ok with it because it makes everyone happy.
It serves as a reward for the dog for being patient and accepting because now that there is a baby in the house he will get all the human junk food he wants again.

Possible Answer:
Based on the facial expression of the girl at the front of the photo it is obvious she is in distress and when you look at the way the three girls to the back of the photo are laughing and looking at her it is clear they are bullying her and making fun of her.

Possible outcome: this is up to you... what do you think?
Possible Answer:
Possible Answer:
Possible Answer:
Possible Answer:
The young girl seems upset due to the frown on her face and the fact she is shutting her eyes and covering her ears and it appears that her parents in the background are either arguing or having a discussion about something that is truly upsetting to the little girl.
This picture is evidence of either an intruder in the house attacking a woman or of an abusive relationship based on the stature of the figure at the top of the stairs and the bruising on the young woman's cheek as well as the look of genuine fear on her face.
This picture is evidence of a proposal for marriage based on the silhouette's showing one person down on 1 knee while holding the hand of the one standing. This is the typical stature of a person proposing.

It could also be the begging of forgiveness or the swearing of an oath if it were set in Ancient times.
This image portrays the inevitable death coming to the old woman's husband or loved one based on the hospital setting and the way she is obviously in emotional agony as she holds on to his hand. The man is also barely showing signs of life as he lies there.
Practice 2
You will read an example text and make an inference as to what happens next.
Again - write this in your notes.
Practice #3
Predicting & Inferring

In this video, you have to write a summary of the entire cartoon. However...

None of it is in English! Use your context clues and make inferences to what you believe the story is about!
At one point I will pause and as you to predict what is going to happen based on your inference skills by discussing it with a partner.
Content Objective: Use inference skills to make predictions in a reading passage.

Language Objective: To understand what an inference is and how making predictions is directly linked to it.

Social Objective: Students will work in pairs on a series of small passages where they must infer on the material & properly predict the outcomes.

is a basic reading skill that requires higher level thinking. To make a good prediction, readers must consider available information and make an inference.
Good readers make predictions based on textual evidence.
If you use evidence to support your predication, you can justify it whether you are right or wrong.
Prediction of outcome: Often children raised around yelling become the same as adults.
Possible outcomes: Personally... I think she's in a horror movie and is about to be killed by Michael Myers...
Prediction of outcomes: Weddings! I love weddings!!!
Prediction: She will mourn his loss and die soon after him
A proper prediction of an outcome would be the child being forced to go back upstairs & put on something more appropriate.
Partner Assignment:

Working with a partner, complete the worksheet assignment called "Making Predictions Worksheet 1."

Be sure to read the passages, and use your inference skills to predict what will occur next in the stories.

As a bonus - put the Author's Purpose & a main idea in the margins!
