Product Description
One of the skills that good readers have is the ability to make meaningful connections (Text-to-Text; Text-to-Self; Text-to-World).

This product provide a one-page handout outlining the importance of making connections, and definition/examples of the three different types so students clearly understand how to set themselves up for success when making connection with what they are reading. This skill, as I explain, is great for English Literature (be it poetry, novels, short stories, plays, films, etc.), but also Social Studies / History, Humanities, Science class, and even Ethics or Law classes.

In addition to the one-page handout, there are also four pages of different accompanying worksheets where students are asked pointed questions as a way of coming up with meaningful connections. (One of these four worksheets has two very slightly different versions that I have included here.)

I use these worksheet for all my secondary students (be they in Grade 8 or Grade 12). I have also used them while teaching in Adult Education. I usually give these resources out to the class at the start of the semester, and we return to them frequently as formative assessment (which is why I have different worksheets to keep students engaged). At the end of term, I have also used them as summative assessment to allow students to showcase how they have learned to make amazingly thoughtful and thought-provoking connections.

I hope they prove as useful to you as they have for me.
