“Early adolescents begin to make inferences about texts but may largely accept what they read in a text as truth. As they grow, adolescents are increasingly able to understand the power structures presented within texts and take on the perspectives of other groups.┬áBy high school, inferencing and questioning skills are sharpened, and critical literacy becomes a more explicit, three-part process: analysis of multiple texts, continuous inquiry, and metacognitive reflection.”
