“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. By 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.”
