					Inference
What the heck is that?
How can it help?
   Inference can be used in several ways
    to help you respond fully to a piece of
    reading.
      You can infer a general fact or a exact
       piece of information.
      You can infer emotions and feelings of
      characters in passage.
     You can infer information about the
      author - his/her opinions, feelings, point of
      view.
To infer successfully you can:


 Work out answer from clues or
  references in the text.
 Work out answer from the connotations
  of words used in text.
 Match something in the text to your own
  understanding, experience, and/or
  knowledge to come up with the correct
  answer.
