Answering Questions in Comprehension and Making Inferences [1x3hours]


After students have read the texts well, they will still need to learn how to answer the questions to show their understanding. This course follows up on the comprehension strategies course to focus on asking and answering questions. Teachers will begin by learning how to analyze their texts and to check them for their difficulty levels. They will then examine comprehension questions (following the new 2015 PSLE format) and work on ways to help students understand the types of questions in comprehension and how to answer them. Specific focus will be placed on helping students answer inferential questions.
