KEY into Inference

Author(s): Chris Parkin, Catherine Parkin and Brian Pool
Publisher: Triune Initiatives, 2010
SKU code: PG_KEY


KEY into Inference is designed to teach inferential comprehension skills. Graded photocopiable masters allow teachers to select material suited to the needs and ability levels of their students. Fiction and non-fiction material at every level recognises the differing demands each type of writing makes on readers.

The structure of KEY into inference enables students to begin with simple, single inferences contained in a sentence and to progress to paragraphs and complete texts, such as they would have to deal with in regular classroom or study situations.

KEY into inference is organised into three graded levels:

  1. Level One, decoding levels: 8 – 10 years
  2. Level Two, decoding levels: 10 – 12 years
  3. Level Three, decoding levels: 12 – 14 years

Each level contains:

  • Between five and seven sets of sentences targeting when, where, what, who and why information (30 to 42 practise items in total). Level 2 also contains negatives and instructions. Level 3 contains double negatives.
  • Eight sets of paragraphs – both fiction and nonfiction items (32 practise items in total)
  • Between 10 and 20 sets of texts – both fiction and nonfiction
