Learning how to draw inferences from text is a key reading comprehension skill. Here's a learning exercise that gives readers a chance to practice by offering 20 descriptive sentences and asking kids to identify the inferred character trait, and the method of characterization used.
- Have groups create a similar chart for a story they are reading, selecting descriptive sentences from the text, identifying the inferred character traits, and the method of characterization used
- The activity assumes learners have experience drawing inferences from descriptions
- The worksheet includes information about various methods of characterization and a example of how to complete the chart
- No scaffolding is provided
