This reading strategy will be covered on the week of September 9th. Students, by the end of the week, you should be able to tell me about this reading strategy in your own words and use it in a text.


What is the “Making Connections” strategy?

Using prior knowledge ( What I know), helps me understand what I am reading.


3 categories: 

Text to self: Something similar that happened to me was…

Text to text: A book I read had a similar problem (character, setting)

                           This is different than another book I read…..

Text to world: That reminds me of something I heard (saw, read) in the news…


If you are a visual learner, watch this video to help you understand this strategy:
