Making Inferences: Thinking About Thinking

Effective, motivating, and easy to use, this set makes a strong addition to your comprehension repertoire. Students conceptualize and infer by placing words and phrases into the information that they provide in columns labeled: Who? What? When? Where? How? Why?

This metacognitive strategy (thinking about thinking) aids students in discerning “the big picture” in factual and inferential understanding. Students actually enjoy the challenge of placing the word(s) into the correct column. The set includes 10 different pages that can be used at different times for interval reinforcement of these metacognitive concepts.

The resource is based on Reading Spotlight's original learning center activity:
