Making Connections
Readers create connections to make text personally relevant and
useful.
*
Strategic readers stick new information in short and long term
memory by hooking old information with new information.
*
Strategic readers connect rapidly with text.
*
Making connections happens before reading, during reading and after
reading.
*
Making connections allows readers to become active readers that
remember what they have read.
*
Making connections allows readers to ask questions that
foster a deeper understanding of text.

Reading & Writing Connection
“Connecting text is an essential academic move
because it is only when a writer has both a
masterful control of ideas already circulating on a
subject and the ability to logically connect those
ideas that anything new or useful about the topic
can be added and knowledge can be created.”
Indiana University South Bend

Reading & Writing Connection
“All academic writing is part of a conversation
between what has previously been written about
a topic and your unique contribution to the
conversation, so learning to choose the parts of
texts you will put together and learning how to
define the nature of those connections can help
you develop the habits of mind that can enhance
your critical and creative thinking skills.”

Talk
❖ What did you already know about making connections?
❖ What is something new you learned about making connections?
❖ How comfortable are you with teaching strategies for making connections?
❖ Discuss the link between reading and writing as it relates to making
connections.
“To every text, a reader brings his/her
personality, present mood, and memories, making
each person’s experience of text almost as unique
as a fingerprint.”
