Making Connections

Students understand text more effectively when making connections. In this session, students were comparing and contrasting text to a text that was previously read.  They were invited to talk with friends and discuss:

"This text was similar to  ______ because ... "

"This text was different than  ______ because ... "

This strategy can be used anytime throughout the reading process. Also, listening to student discussions is a great way to evaluate students' understanding of text. :)
