Activating Schema (A/S)

a. In order to understand the text better, you should try to make connections between what you are reading and what you already know.

b. You can make connections from the text to:

  • Another text/book (History, English, Science, etc.)
  • Ideas from another subject
  • Other ideas and events from History
  • Current Events

Avoid making connections to your personal life because often these connections are very superficial (shallow)

c. Try to use the following starters.

“…reminds me of…because…’

“ …is similar to… because…”
