Making Connections while Reading: This bundle contains multiple resources for teaching students how to make connections while reading. Four types of connections are introduced: text-to-self, text-to-text, text-to-media, and text-to-world.
This bundle includes:
1. A 50-slide PowerPoint (You have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to Google Slides, if you wish.)
2. A 5-page matching PowerPoint Companion Handout (The companion handout includes both a printable version and a Google Slides version.)
3. A Connections Craftivity
4. Four Connection Posters
5. Partner Plays (a set of 5 scripts- this is available in both digital and printable format)
6. Practice Passages (a set of 4 passages that can be used as practice worksheets or an assessment- this is available in both digital and printable format)
In the PowerPoint, I really stress the importance of writing DEEP connections rather than surface connections. Several examples of both deep connections and surface connections are provided in the PowerPoint.
