Presentation Transcript


1. Making Inferences (starring Garfield, Calvin, and Snoopy) http://www.garfield.com/fungames/comiccreator.html

5. What is an inference?

6. gathering clues and reading between the lines reaching conclusions on the basis of evidence and reasoning “author and me” questions Synonyms, deduction, conjecture, speculation, presumption

7. Sometimes people say this when there’s a piece of information they don’t know that’s keeping them from making an inference. In this comic you have to know what a “symptom” is. A symptom is a sign or indicator of something. Calvin is trying to show his mom signs of being sick but tells her so many silly ones that she knows he’s faking it. “I don’t get it”...

8. Think about the hidden information in this comic that you have to figure out in order to “get it”.... The teacher sends Calvin to the principal when he takes the gum out of his mouth and offers to share it instead of understanding that his teacher is sarcastically reminding Calvin that he shouldn’t be chewing gum. He tries to blame the teacher for the trouble he’s in with the principal.

9. When you think about that hidden information on your own and understand the comic the author has written, you’re making an inference! It’s like an “author and me” question where you use your own thinking and background knowledge combined with the information the author has written.

10. Now try some on your own to practice the skill of making inferences: As you read the comics on the keynote try explaining why it’s funny. In order to explain, you’ll need to “read between the lines” and tell what information isn’t directly there. This is inferring. Sometimes you may not “get it”. If that happens, you can write your note instead on what you don’t understand. That’s the missing information that’s keeping you from inferring.

16. Now every time you read a comic you can practice the skill of inference and think about reading between the lines. Make Garfield proud!
