Steps in Deductive Reasoning

apply to the situation.
2. Identify the conditions or reasons that
have to be in place for that
generalization.
3. If the conditions are in place, determine
whether the generalization is true or
false.

5. Make additional observations to see if the
generalization holds up. If not, change the
generalization.

ABSTRACTING

How can abstracting help improve
student achievement?
Being able to recognize patterns is a
foundational skill for most subject areas.
Patterns help us to organize and use
information more easily.
This process helps build connections between
different sets of information, deepening our
understanding of both sets of information.
How is this accomplished?
Abstracting enables us to compare and contrast
types of information, even though they may
not seem similar at all.
Comparing unfamiliar or new with something
familiar, we can…
• improve communication
• deepen comprehension
• provide insight to the recipient
Steps in the process
1. Identify what is considered important
information
2. Write the information in a more general
form
– Replacing specific words with more general
things
– Summarize information whenever possible
3. Find new information or situations where
the pattern applies
