text to world

Working Definition

A reflective text to world connection occurs when the text causes an association to be made with the reader's understanding of the world. It is very similar to a text to self 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 historic or current events.
