This Making Inferences – Use Your Mind to Read! unit also includes:

How can you tell if someone is happy? The lesson works with elementary and middle school scholars to activate their schema and pay attention to details to make inferences in their daily lives, poetry, and other literature. Cleverly scaffolded, the lessons progress in difficulty; first beginning with acted scenarios, then moving to application with writing. Engaging activities, evidence-based organizers, and carefully designed lesson plans help the class attain success with making inferences.
