Study Notes

RI.1

Standard RI.1.1

Draw inferences from texts.

Example of Inference Drawing

Inferring means making an educated guess based on information already known. When we infer, we make connections between what we know and something new we are learning.

Inferring in Texts

When reading a text, we constantly make inferences based on the information given. The text may not explicitly state what is being inferred, but it can be revealed by examining the language used and the connections between the ideas presented.

Standard RI.1.2

Explain texts, including through sequencing details in narratives, describing the relationship among causes/effects of events, and establishing connections between ideas.

Explanation of Texts

Text explanation involves understanding the main ideas, key details, and relationships between different parts of the text. It requires students to analyze and interpret the meaning of various elements within the text.

Sequencing Details in Narratives

Sequencing refers to the process of organizing actions or events into a logical order. This skill helps readers understand the flow of a narrative and follow along with the storyline.

Describing the Relationship Between Causes and Effects

Cause-and-effect relationships refer to the connection between an event and the consequences that result from that event. Identifying these relationships helps readers understand why certain things happen and how they are related to other events in the text.

Standard RI.1.3

Compare and contrast information presented and clarify any discrepancies found (e.g., identify any inconsistencies between two texts).

Comparison of Information

Comparing information involves looking at similarities and differences between two or more pieces of data or concepts. This skill allows us to draw conclusions about their relative merits and understand their implications.

Contrasting Information

Contrasting information highlights the differences between two or more entities. By comparing and contrasting, we can better understand both the similarities and dissimilarities between them.

Clarification of Discrepancies

Discrepancies occur when there are differences or inconsistencies within a text or between multiple sources. In this context, clarification means making something clearer or easier to understand.
