Do Now (5-7 minutes): 

SRA summarizing

Direct Instruction (I DO): 

The teacher tells the class that another technique that they will be working on is to inference. The teacher asks the class if they remember what it is to inference. The teacher reminds scholars that inferencing is the “process of judging, concluding, or reasoning from some given information”. The teacher hands out the inferencing guide sheet. The teacher goes over the strategy of using inferencing to understand text by looking for clue in the book, thinking about what they know about the topic, and using the clues and what they know to figure out what the author means. The teacher gives the class the example that if the teacher read

“Samantha was very excited. She was running as fast as she could. As she reached the finish line, her whole face glowed with her smile.”

Ask scholars what they think is happening. The teacher listens to student responses. The teacher asks the students why they knew that Samantha won the race. Teacher tells the class that this is inferencing and that they will use inferencing in this text not only to understand what is happening in the story, but also to make predictions. The teacher tells the students that they will work on this technique while reading the novel.

Guided Practice (WE DO):    

Post these questions on the promethean board.  Explain that these questions are not written in the text.  We will have to figure out the answers from clues in the story:

1)      Now that the students are going home, how do you think they’ll behave with not being able to talk to their families?

2)      What are some possible hindrances to the family relationship because of the no talking rule?

3)      How many students can you predict will crack under the pressure?
