Reading: Making Inferences 

When readers infer, they read between the lines or go beyond the surface details and draw inferences that are implied, but not stated in the text.  When inferring, readers pay attention to what they already know and the clues from the story to draw conclusions about a character or an event within the text.  



 Learning Target(s): 

 I can use details and examples in a text to infer about things that are not directly stated.  I can make inferences about characters and events within the stories I read.
