Generalize Fourth Grade Unit 3 Week 5 By Kristi Waltke
A generalization is a broad statement or rule that applies to many examples. A clue word such as all, most, always, usually, or generally signals that an author is making a generalization. A generalization can be valid (logical) or faulty (wrong) depending on the number of examples on which it is based and on how logical and careful the thinking is.
