DRAWING A CONCLUSION What is a Conclusion? A conclusion is an educated guess you make when reading, based on the facts and details the author gives in a text. Some information may be implied by the author in the text, but may not be clearly stated. You then have to draw your own conclusions in order to better understand the text. There are three resources you can use to help you draw a conclusion: 1. the details and facts stated in the text 2. personal information you already have learned 3. knowledge gained from your own personal experiences. Example: Garrett was hopeful that he would have a snow day tomorrow. The weather man had predicted large amounts of snow would fall over night. Garrett would be disappointed if the weather man was wrong. Garrett woke up the next morning and raced to the window. Just then, his mom came in his room and told him the news. Garrett yelled out with joy and jumped back into his bed. What conclusion can you draw after reading this story? Answer: That Garrett’s school was cancelled because of snow. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
