Connections Guide - This worksheet, which fits three on a page, is designed to help students practice making connections. It is generic so it can be used with any text and is useful throughout the year. Once they’ve made a connection, they determine what type of connection it is: text-to-self, text-to-text, or text-to-world. It is quick and easy to assess student understanding and can be graded and sent home to keep parents aware of the reading strategies you are teaching and practicing in class.
