About this teaching resource

This resource Inferring and Drawing Conclusions: Mini Lessons, K-8, will help you design Mini Lessons in inferencing at each level

What is Inferring?

Inferring is a strategy that allows readers to merge their background knowledge with text clues to come to a conclusion about new ideas that aren't directly stated in the text.

How does inferring help us as a reader?

Drawing conclusions helps readers gather more information and ideas and understand the writer's point of view.

What do good readers do?

Gather and question details from the text and reach a decision that makes sense.


'Inferencing is the bedrock of comprehension. It is about reading faces, reading body language, reading expressions, and reading tone, as well as reading text.'

Harvey and Goudvis, Strategies That Work
