Demonstration Comprehension Strategy: Making Connections: Text-Text Compare/Contrast
Making Connections: Text-Text
Making Connections: Definition Students can compare different versions of familiar stories, texts written by the same author, or texts that address a common theme or topic. When readers make text-text connections, they link the text or an element of it to another text they’ve read or to a familiar film or TV program.
Making Connections Key Features Why is this strategy important? –Text-Text connections require higher level thinking and can be difficult for students who have less experience with texts. Ways to teach: –Making Connections Charts –Drawing Connections Bridge –Code the Text
