Study Guide Drawing Conclusions English Language Arts, Grade 5

DRAWING CONCLUSIONS A conclusion is a reasonable decision you make based on the facts and details given in a text. An author may not clearly state a certain fact in the text…so you may need to draw your own conclusion when reading to figure out what is being implied by the author. Drawing conclusions helps you better understand the reading. You can use the hints or clues the author includes in the text to help you draw conclusions and develop a better understanding of the text. When drawing a conclusion in a reading, you should use the following: 1. the facts and details in the story 2. information you have already know 3. your knowledge from personal experiences. Example: Ken was ready for his match. He tightened the strings on his racket, walked onto the court, and was ready to play. The author does not state directly what sport Ken was playing, but we can draw the conclusion that he was going to play tennis. The author gives several clues to help us draw this conclusion. Those clues include: - match - strings in racket - court These clues lead us to draw the conclusion that Ken is playing tennis. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
