Make Inferences

Inferring is a process of creating meaning that is not explicitly stated within a text. Inferring helps students to grasp subtext, make predictions about future events, answer questions, and make judgments about what is being read. It is a useful skill in reading, and also in life.

The Detective's Notebook Game

The Detective's Notebook Game is designed to get students to think about what they are reading and to answer questions that require inferencing. In the game the student has access to an amateur detective's notebook in which several clues or events have been observed. From these clues, some inference or prediction can be made.
