This Schema Comprehension Strategy Pack contains everything you need to teach your students how to use schema to make connections when reading. I’ve included posters for an anchor chart, a lesson plan for introducing the topic and creating the anchor chart, and literature lists for each kind of connection. Also included are graphic organizers that can be used with any text.
The organizers include:
Making Text-to-Self Connections
Making Text-To-Self Connections and explaining how it helps with understanding
Making Text-To-Text Connections Finding Similarities
Making Text-To-Text Connections Venn Diagram
Making Text-To-World Connections
Making Character Connections
Activating Schema Before, During, and After Reading
I've also included ideas for using non-linguistic representation that will have your students making meaningful connections as they read and having fun, too!
