1 read the sentence
1) Read the sentence

The fugitive laid silently in the barn as the police searched for him in the fields.

2 look for the text evidence
2) Look for the text evidence:

The fugitive laid silently in the barn as the police searched for him in the fields.

  • “Laid silently in the barn”
  • “Searched in the field for him.”
3 add your background knowledge
3) Add your background knowledge
  • Background knowledge = what you already knew before you read. What you have learned from other books, things you’ve done, things you’ve learned
  • Think of it like a suitcase – everyone comes to school with a suitcase full of things they already know. We just have to USE it!
our background knowledge
Our Background Knowledge:
  • Our background tells us that if you’re laying quietly while someone searches for you, you’re hiding from them.
  • If the police are searching in the field, they’re probably looking for him.
4 put it all together
4) Put it all together!
  • So if the text evidence says he’s silently in the barn and police are searching for him…
  • And we know that only happens if you’re hiding from people chasing you …
  • Then a fugitive must mean someone who has fled from people chasing him!
now you try
Now you try!
  • From The Magician’s Elephant
    • “Later that night, when the candle was quenched and the room was in darkness ….”
    • Unknown word = quenched
  • What are the text clues?
  • What do you know (background knowledge)
    • Buzz and share as a class
quenched means
Quenched means ….
  • To put out or extinguish!
you teach it
YOU teach it!
  • How will your group teach others to use inferences with context clues?
