Back to Inference: Teaching Students to Develop Hypotheses, Evaluate Evidence, and Draw Logical Conclusions (A Strategic Teacher PLC Guide)
If your school's mission is to teach students higher-order thinking skills, then you want students to be able to examine information and draw powerful conclusions. But teaching students how to make inferences is not something that comes from a textbook. Your faculty needs this Strategic Teacher PLC Guide on how to help students acquire inferential thinking skills. Buy multiple copies of this guide and use it in your next professional learning community (PLC) to explore research-based, classroom-tested strategies that teach students to
- Derive conclusions from data by grouping and labeling the data and using the groups to generate and test hypotheses.
- Use clues to examine and analyze a puzzling question or situation.
- Construct main ideas that are not explicitly stated.
- Use problem-solving approaches to investigate new content.
Use the activities, sample lessons, and examples of student work to learn why and how to teach students a skill that is critical to 21st century learning.
