Visualizing helps you to draw conclusions, which are _________, not wild assumptions. A. educated guesses B. uneducated guesses C. internal visualizations D. external visualizations
Answer: C. [ internal visualizations What conclusion(s) can you draw based on the information given? What evidence have you gathered to support your conclusion? How does drawing conclusions help readers to gain a higher level of understanding? Transcript: This lesson idea helps students improve reading comprehension by drawing conclusions. It's about being a detective - putting together
clues and evidence from the text to determine meaning. Picture this: You’ve arrived at your bus stop two minutes later than usual. There are usually ten other students at your stop, but right now there are none. There a school bus down the road heading towards the school, but it is too far away to see the number. What conclusion can you draw? Explain to students that they draw conclusions every day. It’s putting the clues (or evidence from the text) together to form meaning and gain understanding. This reading strategy can be used with literary or informational texts. For this lessoncast we used the picture book, The Wretched Stone. Before reading, focus attention on a question that requires students to draw conclusions by putting together information from multiple parts of the text. During reading, model how to use think-about questions and cite information from the text that relates to the focus question. {What visual details offer clues? What facts/details provide key information? What can we learn from the characters’/subjects’ thoughts, actions, and words? Was there an important turn of events or shift in tone? What cause and effect relationships may be present?} Allow students to record information on a graphic organizer or post-it notes. After reading, review the evidence and draw a conclusion to answer the focus question. If students give an answer that is off-base, ask them to show in the text evidence that supports their answer. Usually, this helps them to rethink their conclusion. For a different mode of presentation, students can practice the strategy when watching a video clip. ]
