e Skills Minimod Reading for Inferences, by e Skills Learning, can be used as a building block for students to gain the fundamentals of this imperative reading skill. To make an inference, one needs to “read between the lines” when things are not stated outright in a passage. For success, one needs to be able to make educated guesses about what someone or something is implying. This app is asking students to think harder, to use their reasoning skills and develop higher level critical thinking skills. As Bruce Brown, the developer states: Inferential thinking is a core Reading Comprehension Skill. The student looks for implied but unstated information in a passage.
Each eSkills Learning Minimod focuses on a specific Essential Skill helping students master that skill as a foundation for the next skill. Each module also contains supplemental materials with Real World practice. The variety materials were designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of learners and learning styles and to provide for differentiation in skill development as students learn while they play.
