Presentation Transcript

  1. Zooming In Making inferences from text

  2. In your journals… • Why is this cartoon (supposed to be) funny? • How did you figure that out?

  3. Same Questions, Different Cartoon… • Why is this cartoon (supposed to be) funny? • How did you figure that out?

  4. Definitions/Purpose • Inference: when a reader combines background knowledge with clues from the text to draw conclusions • Why? • Authors don’t explicitly tell you everything • Sometimes readers know more than a character • Keeps the reader engaged with making guesses/being amused

  5. The Steps • Find evidence (“I read…”) • 2. Connect with background knowledge (“I know…”) • 3. Draw conclusions (“So…)

  6. Perspective • Who narrates most of The Kite Runner? • What do we know about Amir? • How might that affect the story he tells us? • Why does Rahim Khan choose to reveal this information at this time?

  7. Writing Enterprise! • Writing a journal entry from the perspective of a character OTHER THAN Amir. You are inferring how s/he feels to write this. • Must turn in completed pre-writing thought organizer • Draft the journal entry in your class notebook • You will type the final copy and email it to me next class
