In this session, the team will focus on sharing strategies to assist parents in helping their student further develop the "foundational reading skill" inferencing (Fiction - AKS 1 and Nonfiction AKS 10: refer to multiple details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text), a prerequisite for the level of higher-order/critical thinking skills students need as they continue to progress academically.
