Drawing Inferences


Read Between the Lines

  • Not all information is clearly stated.

  • Some information is implied and must be inferred by the reader.


Sources of Inferences

  • You can sometimes draw an inference by observing something or someone.

  • You can draw inferences when having a conversation with someone, either by the way the person said something or what was left unsaid.

  • In reading, inferences can be drawn by analyzing the actions of the characters.


Inferences vs. Facts

  • Inferences must be drawn from the facts that are provided to be accurate.

  • However, you can underline a fact in a book, but you can only feel an inference.


Higher-Order Skills

  • The ability to draw inferences is one of the higher-order reading skills.
