Check your learner’s test scores! You will see information on your student’s ability to make inferences when they read. This is an important reading skill that can be taught. Students can become skilled thinkers and readers in regard to making inferences.

In this class, students will learn a two-step process to interpret the meaning in a comic strip, video clip, and text. They will look for clues in the pieces and use their background knowledge to make an inference, answering questions that require them to think. They will defend their thinking by talking about how they know what they know.

Learners will use the chatbox to write, and this is the way we engage with quieter students, helping those who need it and enriching others. Class is fun, challenging, and engaging.

The Lemons-Aid Way: Our Approach to Teaching and Learning is Explicit!

Explicit teaching is a method of instruction students desperately need! It is the opposite of a constructivist philosophy whereby students try to construct meaning themselves.


Instead of leaving students to magically figure out how to write an essay or read or do a geometry proof, we teach explicitly, which is backed by a large body of evidence, and it’s how Mrs. Lemons teaches her undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates in college to teach! We do it this way because it’s how kids learn.

Explicit instruction is “a structured, systematic, and effective methodology for teaching academic skills. It is called explicit because it is an unambiguous and direct approach to teaching that includes both instructional design and delivery procedures. Explicit instruction is characterized by a series of supports or scaffolds, whereby students are guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning the new skill, clear explanations and demonstrations of the instructional target, and supported practice with feedback until independent mastery has been achieved.”
-Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching by Anita L. Archer and Charles A. Hughes.

Anita Archer trained Mrs. Lemons in workshops, and it changed her teaching. Read a little more about the research behind explicit teaching here and here.
