Last updated 9:35 AM on 24 March 2012

As you may well know one of my real passions is the instruction of reading and in particular developing the literal and more importantly inferential comprehension.  What is inferential comprehension? 

Inferential comprehension requires the student to draw on their background knowledge of a topic and use clues from a text to answer more complex and abstract questions.  

For example: 'Describe how the character may have felt when their favourite toy was lost'

I am attaching a terrific little article providing some rich ideas on how you can develop some of these skills at home.
