Making connections to the text is an important way we can help learners understand what they are reading. If you think about it, our memory and learning is much about our brain making connections. As readers connect the text to self, to other texts, and to experience, they can be actively engaged in their reading. This post explains three kinds of connections readers make before, during, or after reading. Included in the free pack are five different making connections pages: 1- text-to-self, 2/3- text-to-text (and text to movie), 4-text-to-world, and 5- making connections.
