A projective world to text connection occurs when the reader's understanding of the world is used to help better understand the text. It is very similar to a self to text connection with the difference being that the reader may not have directly experienced what is being connected, but rather it is generated from generalizations formed about how the world works, or prior knowledge of historical or current events.
What happened in your reading that reminded you of something that really happened to someone other than yourself? Record what happened in the book and what really happened. Make a Venn diagram to compare and contrast these two events.
Record a connection that helps you to understand the text. Explain how this connection helps you to understand the text.
Record a connection that helps you to understand the text. Explain how this connection could help someone else to understand the text.
