Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Making Inferences about the Character of the Characters in "The Scarlet Ibis" - Section 4: Application


Students finished the inference chart for homework. As I looked over some of their charts, I noticed that some of them were predictions rather than inferencing, so I realized that I need to pull a small group of students to explain the difference between the two. An inference is something that is implied in the text, whereas a prediction is something that the reader thinks might happen. One way that I will adjust my teaching of this skill is to give them examples of each to see if they can differentiate between them before I ask them to re-do the chart. In the future, the guided practice for this lesson might include a list of inferences and predictions that students will need to categorize appropriately before they can move forward with independent practice.
