In this ongoing class we'll be exploring how to understand what's going on in a fiction or non-fiction text, discovering strategies to help us and practicing inference and predictive skills from both text and illustrations.

Class Experience

US Grade 3 - 5
Students will practice:
predicting what a book or text will be about
inference - both from pictures (where used) and text
predicting what might happen next based on what has happened so far and inference clues
working out unfamiliar words from context clues
understanding characters
the effects of different punctuation
Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, along with Theatre Arts, I have 20 years of experience in teaching English in primary schools. Over those years, I have worked regularly with learners (as a class, in groups, and individually) specifically on English reading and writing skills and teaching English online. I'm a great advocate of the belief that the experience of reading is far more than decoding words on a page.
