Promoting Lively Literature Discussion
Gritter, Kristine
Reading Teacher, v64 n6 p445-449 Mar 2011
When students create personal connections with literature during whole-class discussion, they make sense both of text and of their life experiences. In this article, the author shares tips that help students make text-to-self, text-to-world, and text-to-text connections. She offers classroom examples to illustrate how conversations that encourage these connections can benefit reading comprehension. (Contains 2 tables.)
