The three main strategies for making connections are text to self, text to text, text to world. As you read the play, complete the double-entry journal. The left side of the chart must contain at least 10 quotations from the play with page numbers noted. You may paraphrase if you wish. On the right side, you must comment by making connections between the play and other literature in the course (or that you have read before), a personal experience that you can strongly connect to the selection (not a simple connection to what you had for dinner last night, for example), or to something you have noticed happening in the world.
In order to achieve at the higher levels in this assignment, your connections must be complex and meaningful. Simple connections will not necessarily be incorrect, but they will result in a score at the lower levels. You may respond to questions such as:
- What strikes you about this?
- What was your first thought when you read this? And then? And then?
- What does this passage/idea make you think of or remember?
- Do you want to challenge or qualify this author’s claim? In what ways do you agree with it? Disagree?
- What else have you read/heard/experienced that connects with this author’s ideas?
- Does something confuse you or lead to further questions?
- How do you feel about this?
- What have you learned?
