INFERENCE & PREDICTIONWhat they have in common…

  • You make a logical guess using evidence from the text, your own knowledge, and common sense.

  • Developing skills in making inferences and making predictions is a critical aspect of becoming a master of words and of literature.

What is the difference
What is the Difference?

  • Inferences are made about what happened in the past or what is currently happening.

  • Predictions are an attempt to guess what WILL happen in the future. (Hint: predictions usually have the words will or going to in them)

  • Inferences are RARELY confirmed. You most likely will NOT find out if you were right or wrong.

  • Predictions are almost ALWAYS confirmed! You will find out if you were right or wrong!

Inferences how to make them
INFERENCES-how to make them

  • Read the text carefully.

  • Think about the types of inferences readers make/ask yourself a question to find the answer to

  • Look for clues such as pictures, the title, vocabulary and the text. Act like you're a detective!

  • Use background knowledge and what you already know about a topic.

  • Make sure your inference is logical and well-reasoned.
