Reflection: Lesson Planning Making Logical Inferences - Section 3: Guided Practice


One of the aspects of this story that might cause confusion is the food.  I tried not emphasize the food when asking my students to make inferences, partly because Australian food is unfamiliar to me and partly because I did not think there was enough information in the story to make an inference as to what the food was.  My students were able to understand that the food was important, but they did not know what foods the author was talking about.  I anticipated my students might ask, ‘What is a ___?”  Being honest, I asked the same question.  So, in the end, to nip the confusion in the bud, I created the PowerPoint to give a little background information and to let my students know the food names might sound ‘different,’ but the pictures looked really yummy.
