|sooooo cute! This was us today, wasn't it?!?|
since it is Monday and half our students are gone to Quest, we did begin working on our new concept of focus for this week, but did not fully dive in as deep as we will for the remainder of the week. Our focus this week is on drawing conclusions. We discussed that drawing conclusions is like making final observations or a final decision on something...it is a lot like making an inference in that you are making a guess based on information read in the passage. You are not directly told the conclusion to draw, so it is a higher level skill in that you must use what you've read to basically "read between the lines" and draw a conclusion as to what the author is implying or intending for you to understand. There are things author's don't always tell us and good readers must be able to identify that and use what conclusions they draw to drive their understanding of the text to its optimal level.
