Background knowledge

Background knowledge - pre-existing knowledge that a reader brings to the text and is necessary to make inferences and draw conclusions; background knowledge is derived from life experiences, conversation, and reading.

Reading Universe is made possible by generous support from Jim & Donna Barksdale, the AFT, the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, and three anonymous donors.
