Text to Text Connections

Myers introduces the worksheet students will use to note the text-to-text connections they find during independent reading time.

This worksheet will be given to the students for their independent work time. The students will need to look for their own text to text connections as they do their independent reading. It is very important that tasks that I ask the children to do are modeled thoroughly before by the teacher. In addition, these tasks make the students accountable for their work. I ensure that they are collected daily at the end of the workshop so I can look them over and assess my students.
