We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Inferences: Can You Make Them?

Inferening is a skill students need to practice.  Its really teaching students how to think using logic and evidence.  Students do it all the time.  However, for some reason when you aske them to apply this concept to a reading selection they make it harder then it really is, don't t ask me why?  I work on this one all year.   If you want students to learn how to make inferences in literature, nonfiction and real life, and to support those inferences with strong, reliable evidence my suggestion is to start working on it NOW. Here is a great tool to help,..watch Mister Sato's take on INFERENCING!

How do you teach infereincing?  I'd love your views on this one, as always, let us know here at The Things You Can Read in the comment section!
