Making Inferences from Dialogue

Inferential Comprehension

When a writer uses the ‘show, don’t tell’ technique to communicate a narrative, the reader must work out what is happening by making inferences. This video demonstrates how to ‘read between the lines’, looking at how dialogue is delivered, to understand more about the unstated messages in a narrative text. With clear explanations and text examples on-screen, this is a helpful resource for English classrooms.
