Building background is essential for reading comprehension. The more you know about a topic, the easier it is to read through a text, understand what you have read and then retain the information. This is a quick worksheet to get students to build background around the novel “Dragons Love Tacos” by Adam Rubin. The actual story is NOT included in the worksheet. These questions get students thinking about their own context and can start to build background and make connections to the text prior to reading. Students can write their answers down or the teacher can just use the questions for an oral discussion.
