My daughters as a part of their reading development are both learning to infer the meaning of what the writer is saying. I guess inferring means reading between the lines to gain a better understanding.
Over the years I hope to teach them the importance of finding the implication of what the writer is saying. Not so they can search for the implication for everyone else, but so they learn to seek an implication of what they read to themselves.
Often as adults, we read to gain knowledge and readily see the implications to everyone but ourselves, but fail to make personal change.
So maybe now is the time to teach my daughters to read and infer and imply. And maybe now is the time to teach them to take action.
Then rather than having my kids learn to know.
They would learn to do.
