An inferencing worksheet typically asks students to look at a situation or passage and determine meaning that is not explicitly stated. Students draw from their own experience and what they already know in order to arrive at a reasonable conclusion. The conclusion may not be explicitly stated in the text.
Inferencing is an important skill for students to learn when they are reading because it is a skill they will use throughout their lives. Inferencing helps students think critically about situations that occur in the reading and draw conclusions or make predictions based on those situations. Usually, an inference requires students to “read between the lines” and reach a conclusion based on their own experiences and clues from the text.
