Inference / Comprehension

When a child completes a comprehension task – it goes beyond being able to answer questions about who, what, where and when. Language itself is inferential. To build and maintain confidence in working with texts and answering comprehension questions students need to be supported in:

  • Understanding the concept of inference.
  • Identifying the inferences from text.
  • Explaining inferences both verbally and in written form.

The high standards required by NAPLAN and further exams require a high level of inferred meaning. Working with students to develop a deep understanding of inferencing will best support them in demonstrating their level of comprehension.

At Sprout Tutoring we customise individual learning experience that will engage students and motivate them to complete tasks to the best of their ability.

Contact our director to discuss the current needs of your child and how we can best support their progress.
