(I DO)

Use passages from Jamaica's Find to discuss text to self connection Make text to self connections about characters using prior experiences. Good readers use prior knowledge and make connections to the characters in the text. When we connect to characters, we are connecting to their feelings, actions, or reactions. Connections must be deep and not surface level. (Surface-level example: I am like the character because I have black hair too.) Text-to-self connections are made when we can identify with the characters because we have experienced something similar. When we make

connections, we use our prior knowledge. Guided Practice


How will students try out the strategy before being sent off independently? What questions will you ask as they practice that will push higher level thinking?
