2022 PaTTAN Literacy Symposium
34. Inference: Multiple Contributions to Comprehension
Wednesday June 15, 2022 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM - Webinar
Comprehension involves creating a meaningful representation of the text within the reader’s mind. The skilled reader builds this mental model by intertwining background knowledge with the semantics, syntax, structure of the text. Inference plays a critical role in integrating and constructing this representation at successive levels of understanding including the meaning of words, sentences and what is implied in the text. Let’s explore inference, its multiple contributions to comprehension and related instructional implications and applications.
