Re:Is teaching students how to infer something that you feel confident teaching?
I remember when I first started teaching, I was a little mystified by the term "higher level thinking." I used it freely but I don't think I quite understood what it meant. Inferring is higher level thinking and as a beginning teacher, I was never sure how to teach it. In fact, I'm not sure I understood it myself. I did a lot of work at the end of last year on teaching comprehension with some second graders that I was working with. If you want some ideas and tips for how to teach inferring, check out the photo gallery on this site. Go to free resources, photo gallery, comprehension, inferring.

Is teaching students how to infer something that you feel confident teaching?
I've been talking to a lot of the teachers that I work with lately about teaching comprehension, specifically how to teach children to infer. I have noticed a thread in all of our conversations: a lot teachers feel like they know that they should be teaching inferring because they recognize it as a higher level thinking skill but don't know exactly HOW to teach it. Do you feel the same way? What do you feel like you would need to know in order to teach inferring effectively?
