Created by Liam Hall of Gateway Community and Technical College, this lesson uses a series of videos to introduce students to inferencing, models a process for making inferences, and then gives students independent practice. Each video is chunked into segments no longer than 5 minutes to allow for micro-learning and easy replay in the event of confusing elements.


This lesson was created as part of the 3X3 Self-directed Learning option for professional learning during COVID-19 “Healthy at Home.”
