Draw conclusions

Draw Conclusions

A conclusion is a decision based on information. That information, or evidence, consists of facts, details, and ideas presented in the text. Good readers try to draw conclusions as they read based on the information the writer gives and on what they know from their own experiences.

If you have difficulty drawing conclusions about a character or ideas in the text, you should read ahead to look for information that might tell more about the character or explain the idea.

Read the following paragraph. Why did Jason need to run home for a few minutes?

Draw conclusions1

Draw Conclusions

Jason did yard work fro Mrs. Reginald on Tuesday afternoons. He brought his dad’s equipment with him. One Tuesday he brought the lawn mower, the clippers, and a broom. Usually, Jason began by mowing the lawn. Then he watered the plants and swept the walks and driveway. Some Tuesdays he weeded. This particular Tuesday Mrs. Reginald asked him to rake the garden. Jason told Mrs. Reginald that he would be glad to, but that he’d have to run home for a few minutes first.

Jason needed to get a rake, since he had not brought one with him. He needed the rake to do the garden that Mrs. Reginald asked him to do.

This afternoon was pretty dull. Mr. Glass attended meetings with all the other chemists. There was no sign that the rain would stop so there wasn’t much to do.

Summary Practice

Write a two-sentence summary of this paragraph.

There’s much to see on a visit to San Francisco. The city is built on more than forty hills and is nearly surrounded by water. Therefore, there is great natural beauty. There are also fascinating sites, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, which is one of the largest and most spectacular suspension bridges in the world, and Lombard Street, famous because it is the most crooked street in America. No visit to San Francisco is complete without a ride on a cable car or a seafood repast (a meal) at Fisherman’s Wharf. Tourists will also want to stroll through the Japanese garden in Golden Gate Park or meander through the colorful shops of Chinatown.

San Francisco is a city of natural beauty and fascinating sites. Visitors will not want to miss seeing the Golden Gate Bridge and Park, Lombard Street, Chinatown, eating at Fisherman’s Wharf, or riding on a cable car.
