LC: To activate reading strategies: activating background knowledge

Book to self means what experiences you have had, this could be previous learning, an activity you have done or maybe a holiday or a place you have visited which will help you understand more, when reading a book about this subject...


Book to world knowledge is what you already know of the world that you can relate to what you are reading. For example: you may know that Rome is the capital of Italy and that is where the Romans came from.


Book to book means that you can relate ideas and see similarities in stories and themes when reading different books.
