Useful Resources on Making Inferences in Nonfiction Texts

Memorizing formulas, facts and figures is just one component of education. The ability to make inferences based off those formulas, facts and figures is a vital critical thinking skill. And it takes practice. There are many devices in the Learning Library to teach kids how to draw conclusions from nonfiction texts.

Many teachers find the step-by-step lesson plans are both timely and historical. As technology makes life more convenient, people are more distracted. A highly-rated lesson plan, Close Reading: Introduction offers students practice in paying attention to detail, not only in nonfiction texts but also in their physical surroundings. Another lesson plan uses excerpts about the Underground Railroad and asks children to write diary entries based off imagining they were escaping slavery. What are their emotions? What would be the challenges and dangers?

There are also dozens of printable worksheets with reading material students find fascinating. Kids can read about interesting characters such as the famous escape artist, Harry Houdini, or the infamous deaf piano prodigy, Beethoven. The short biographies are followed by questions that get children thinking beyond the letters on the page. Other worksheets are an investigation on crop circles, the moon or the history of cars.

Parents and teachers can browse the many ready-to-go lessons and assignments on making inferences in nonfiction texts. The helpful resources save educators time and energy without sacrificing the quality of the classroom experience.
