Making Connections

Use this collection of resources when teaching students how to make connections when reading a piece of text. Learning to make connections means students are able to draw on their prior knowledge and experiences to connect with the text. Students gain a deeper understanding of a piece of text and are far more engaged when they are able to make authentic connections. This collection is full of resources that you can use to show your students how a text connects to their lives, to another piece of text, or to the world around them.
