    Session 2: Mapping Connections on the Reading Journey by Eddy Jones

    Books can be ‘Windows, Mirrors and Sliding Glass Doors’ (Bishop 1990)
    In every genre of text, readers need to know how to look for signposts, to guide their thinking, and help them to ask the right questions.

    Using picture books, we will explore thinking prompts and how they can help readers to use:
    1. text-to-self connections and think about how the story is similar to their own life.
    2. text-to-text connections to compare what they are reading with related texts, including translanguaging strategies that leverage the reader’s home language.
    3. text-to-world connections to ask themselves if the text reminds them of something that has happened, is happening or will happen in the world.
    Finally, we will explore connecting learners’ reading experiences with creating roadmaps for their own writing journeys.
