CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.11-12.1
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.

For this lesson, the students will be analyzing images and political cartoons on the PowerPoint and bags of trash containing various items using “textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain” to conclude upon what kind of person or persons used the items in the trash bag and under what circumstance.

Instructional Strategies/Learning Tasks:
At the beginning of the class period the teacher will ask students what is the difference between an observation and an inference.
“What is an observation?”
“What is an inference?”

Once the students have a better idea of what an inference and observation is, the teacher will introduce a pneumonic strategy that students can use to make inferences when they are reading texts.

The first thing you want to look at are key words or key details from the text, then you can infer or make an educated guess as to what is going on in the text, and always be sure to support your inference by looking at the evidence in the text.”

Using a digital projection screen the teacher will show several different images. The students will make inferences using their prior knowledge and looking at details in the images to support their inferences.
Then the teacher will show students a poem and ask them to figure out what the poem is talking about using textual evidence to support their inferences.

“What is this poem talking
