A REMINDER OF THE ROLE IS STATED BELOW:

Your role is to find connections between the text in the following three ways –

Text to text: Text to text connections are when we compare the text we are reading to other similar texts. These texts could be books, movies or a TV show.

Text to self: Text to self connections are when we connect the text to our own experiences.

Text to world: Text to world connections are when what we are reading links to what is happening in the world.
