How do you draw the Silhouette Head on chart paper?
Infer in 5 Steps
The visual provides a powerful image that reveals the process that occurs inside and outside a reader’s head when inferring a thought based on reading. Students see how text clues (outside the head) are put together with background knowledge (inside the head) in order to make an inference. Modeling this on chart paper for the whole class to see is essential.
Draw the Silhouette Head
- Project the Silhouette Head onto your whiteboard.
- Place a piece of chart paper over the image, minimizing it to fit.
- Trace the projected outline.
