Well, it's taken me a while, amongst all the threads I've started on this subject
, but I THINK I've found the thread you mean. It's not directly about inference and comprehension but I was talking about trying to get DS to think about characterisation. In this thread, both Menagerie and OurMam talk about characterisation being inferred from action or showing a behaviour/ mannerism.viewtopic.php?f=1&t=23771&start=20
On a positive note, and I'm sure all will be relieved to hear it
, I realize, having re-read this thread, that, despite DS's SATS mark having remained the same between year 2 and year 3, I can detect a definite advance in his knowledge/ ability in story ideas; about story structure and characterisation. If only he could do it in the classroom.
Sorry for a slight hijack.
