This lesson enables students to 'read between the lines' in texts and infer significant meanings. Utilising a range of visual, kinaesthetic, and reading tasks, students not only gain an increased understanding of the importance of inference in English, but also gain an awareness of its importance in other areas of life.
The lesson follows an interesting and engaging step-by-step learning journey, which helps students to:
- Define what inference is;
- Understand the importance of inference;
- Infer what they can see;
- Infer what they hear;
