Abstract

In this paper we analysed the inferencial activity that characterises the deep comprehension of expository texts. We have based on three criteria: the degree of explicitness in the text of the information obtained; the degree of complexity of the cognitive operations involved; and the role that such operations perform in the strategic process of comprehension. In this framework, we argue the possibility of distinguishing between two short elaborative inferences: situational and deep. Finally, we provide some approaches to educational intervention designed to increase deep inferences with Secondary Education students.
