SIM Virtual Professional Learning: The Inference Strategy

Oct 18 & 25, 2021 - 4-7 pm EST

Note: This professional learning event is a series of sessions, which will meet twice to learn the instructional routine and provide time for interaction and feedback, and meet three more times for one-hour small group coaching sessions.

Presenters: Rosanne Arvin, SIM PDL & Sue Woodruff, SIM PDL


The Inference Strategy helps older students make inferences about information they have read and answer inferential questions. Students learn to identify key words in questions or invent their own questions to help them search for important information as they read a passage, determine what type of question they need to answer, think about what they already know about a topic, find clues in the reading passage that will help them answer the questions, look for additional information, and answer the question.

Participants will receive the following materials as part of their registration: The Inference Strategy guidebook (student and teacher), access to digital teacher resources, three (one-hour) small group coaching sessions, and three (30-minute) consultation sessions for school administrators.
