Reading Between the Lines - Teaching Children to Understand Inference
This book is designed for teachers and speech & language therapists working in the fields of language and literacy, and concerned with developing inferencing skills in their students. The ability to draw inference is a crucial element in the comprehension of written language, and this resource will be a valuable aid in mainstream classes throughout Key Stage 2. It is especially appropriate for work with children with speech, language and communication needs and those on the autistic spectrum, who are likely to have particular difficulty understanding inference. The book contains a collection of 300 texts which are graded and lead the student gradually from simple tasks with picture support and plentiful clues to more challenging scenarios where true inference is required. The texts can be used with whole classes, groups and individual children.
