Inference means a conclusion or judgment using the facts at hand to make the most likely explanation. What clues from the text can I put together about the characters/problem? Determine the facts presented in the text. What background knowledge helps me understand this? Use past experiences to draw conclusions about the unstated meaning of events or personality traits. What does the author not state? Become aware of word or phrase clues the author provides so the reader becomes aware of information that wasn't directly presented. Does my inference make sense? How do I know? Decide if there is other relevant or new information to support or change the inference.

The key questions for summarizing What is the main idea? What information is irrelevant or unnecessary? How can I put this into my own words? What are the crucial details necessary for supporting the main idea? COMMON CORE: COMMON CORE: STRATEGIES STRATEGIES Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright MMXIII NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 91-4349 What questions do readers ask when summarizing a text? The main idea or gist is the "key concept" of the text. The main idea is the most important piece of information the author wants to convey to the reader. Supporting details help to better understand the main idea. Supporting details help to answer who, what, when and where. Sometimes all the information helps to support the main idea. But sometimes all of the information is not needed. Decide what is important and what is extra important. Use only the most important details and information to write a short description of the text. In non-fiction describe which of the four ways it is organized (compare & contrast, main idea, cause & ef fect, and sequence).
