In this lesson, students will learn the difference between explicit and inferred information. They will read several different texts, including My Computer Ate My Homework by Kenn Nesbitt and "I'm Nobody! Who are you?" by Emily Dickinson, to practice this.
Students will be able to answer explicit questions as well as infer after reading passages.
Students will discuss commercials they have seen. What is explicit? What is inferred?
Students will read statements about a picture of a man fishing and decide whether the statements are explicit or inferred. Next, they will read an excerpt from My Computer Ate My Homework by Kenn Nesbitt and think about a time when they were frustrated by technology. They will analyze parts of the excerpt and tell what they can infer. They will also discuss introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts and read "I'm Nobody! Who are you?" by Emily Dickinson. They will share their ideas about the reading questions. They will then read an excerpt from A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. They will read a story about a character named Meg having trouble at school.
In ten questions, students will review the difference between explicit and inferred information. They will also read two excerpts from Wonder by R. J. Palacio and decide if information is explicitly stated or inferred.
When given 5 clues, students can infer what situation or event is given. Students will then develop their own 5 clues to infer and share them.
