When a friend, a family member, or a teacher believes you can do better, it can help you try harder instead of giving up. They may see potential, where others might see a problem.

What to remember
What to Remember inferences drawn from the text.

  • Readers make inferences to understand what characters are feeling and thinking.

  • To make an inference, you use your reason and experience to guess details the writerdoes not say directly.

  • You combine clues in the story with your own knowledge to help you understand what characters feel and think. **For example, the writer does not say exactly how Roger feels when Mrs. Jones drags him home. However, you can use what you know about how it feels to get caught doing something wrong to make an inference about Roger’s feelings.

Fluency practice
Fluency Practice inferences as you read. One example has been done for you.

  • The English spoken in the United States varies by region and by groups of people. Langston Hughes used different varieties of language in “Thank You, M’am.”

  • Hughes uses dialect and slang to reflect the way real people speak

  • For example, in line 20 Mrs. Jones says, “You a lie” (“You are lying”)

  • Practice you fluency by reading the boxed sections of the text silently many times. THEN practice them aloud with your partners.
