world to text

Working Definition

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.
