    Are you still emailing the ppt? I'd love to see it! I was just attempting inferences the other day. I'll pm you my email.

    I explain inferencing as if they were detectives on a case. You take the clues given to you (foot prints in the mud that are size 10 mens) and what you already know (foot prints in mud meant it happend on a rainy night. When was it raining? Size 10 shoes means the perp was about so tall) and you come up with some ideas and conclusions of your own. (It must have been Mr. McGillicudy on Tuesday night.)

    I love the phone calls and detective ideas.

    I have a friend who teaches college prep reading at a community college. When she teaches inferences/implied main idea, she comes to class wearing all black, crying her eyes out. She spends the first few minutes playing the part, then suddenly, perks up, dries her eyes, and asks her students what they thought was going on with her when she came in. The students usually really enjoy that lesson.

    No... I just clicked on the link and it took me directly to the PPT. Not sure why that did not work for you. I am not a member.

    Yes, I can view it. But in order to download it, it looks like I have to become a member of the site. Let me check again...
