MAKING INFERENCES USING PICTURES~ Students who struggle with text have difficulty getting a complete “picture” of what’s going on. One way to simplify instruction is to teach inferences using only picture clues. Pictures can be decoded more quickly and are accessible to all readers. Includes 14 worksheets and 2 assessments.
