Text-to-Self Connections: Strengthening Reading Comprehension

You'll need to choose your own reading passages to use with this resource, but it clarifies the importance of text-to-self connections in strong reading comprehension. Anything you know that relates to a piece of writing can help illuminate it and make it relevant. I'd use this as a starting point for teaching annotation as a comprehension strategy. Demonstrate how to annotate a text by reading it in front of the class and narrating your own process of making connections and asking questions. Do another as a whole class, and then assign them individual practice. You could pass out five different texts and then form groups based on who read the same text. (You could select the groups this way to meet class needs or allow random groupings.) Have them discuss and share their comments with each other.
