Unit 4: Analyze and Interpret
To analyze means to study something closely and carefully. It is to learn that nature and relationship of the parts of a whole.
To interpret means to explain or tell the meaning of something; we usually need to use inference to make realistic or plausible interpretations.
Inference is the thinking process used to come to a conclusion using known and logical evidence.
Student writing can move beyond simply summarizing and into areas that sharpen the writer's ability to think and the reader's ability to understand.
