  • Understanding Inferences

  • When you read, you can use text clues, along with your prior knowledge and experience, to help you figure out what the author does not tell.

  • 1. As you read, ask yourself, What is the author leaving out that is important to understanding the characters or events?

  • 2. Look for clues in the text.

  • 3. Ask yourself, What do I already know about the topic?

  • 4. Use the text clues and your own experience to determine what the author means or does not tell you.
