Make Connections

This key involves using background knowledge to make mental connections between the text and things the reader already knows. These connections can include things readers have read (text-to-text), things they've seen or heard (text-to-world), and things they've done (text-to-self).

Reading is more meaningful when it is related to the reader's own memories and experiences.
