Connecting Text to Personal Experience and Knowledge
Making Connections 4 Answer Key Pdf
Making connections is a reading comprehension strategy that helps students make meaning of the text they read. It involves connecting the text to personal experiences or knowledge. This strategy can be adapted to a variety of subjects and grade levels. Teachers can introduce this strategy to students by modeling it in class and providing opportunities for supported practice. They can also provide students with a graphic organizer or online resources to support them in their making connection. Using these resources, students can develop deeper, complex, and insightful connections rather than vague, general, or superficial connections. Making connections can help students better comprehend what they read and retain information longer. This is particularly true for students with diverse backgrounds who may be able to make more insightful connections than those with limited experiences.
