Reflection: Relevance Human Impact of Selective Breeding - Section 3: Elaborate


Make connections within the text, to the student's own life, and to the world. Making connections improves comprehension of the text. In making the connection, model for students on how to think specifically. This isn't suggesting that the connection is academic, only that the student pause to consider what exactly the connection. In order to demonstrate this level of thinking, model for students, how they while reading might ask:

  • How does this relate to me?

  • How does this idea relate to other ideas in the text?

  • How does this relate to the world?
