Reaching Out to a Stranger (Gr. 7 Post-Assessment for TLCP on Making Connections)

By Barbara Lewis

Name:_______________________ Date:_____________________________
Task: What do you think the Author’s main message is in the story? How does the main message relate to the virtue of “Courage”? Explain your answer using the three main categories of connections. (Text-to-Text, Text-to-Self, and Text-to-World)
Learning Goal:

We are learning to extend understanding of texts, including increasingly complex or difficult texts, by connecting the ideas in them to our own knowledge, experience and insights, to other familiar texts, and to the world around us.



Success Criteria:

  • I will communicate the most important idea of the text.

  • Connect to the text’s main idea and choose and appropriate response stem.

  • Write connections that are deep, straight to the point, supported with details from the text, containing a balance of appropriate, sufficient detail from the text and your own points in the connection which parallel the text’s points to support the connection in a logical, organized way.

  • Reread the text again to look for the detail to use to support the conclusion.

  • Look for evidence from the text that is related to the text’s main idea.




  1. What is the article’s main idea?
  2. Write a response that uses the three types of connections (Text-to-self, text-to-text and text-to-world) that draws many parallels from the text (examples, events, dialogue, real life examples) to support the points of your own connections. At the end of you response, explain how all of this makes you feel and what you have learned.


  3. Be sure to use appropriate stems to begin your connections, such as:


Text to self:

1)I would solve this problem by…

2)An image that comes to mind when I think about…

3)In the same situation, I would…

4) I have experienced…

5) A personal connection that I can make to the story events in the text is…

6) The big idea in this text is similar/different to…

7) I agree/disagree with what the character did…because…

8) I would (never)…
Text-to-text:


  1. I am reminded of another book/story/film…

  2. I have read a book/story about a setting like this before…

  3. Another book/story/film with the same theme is…

  4. Another book/story/film in the same genre is…


Text-to-World:

  1. I am reminded of an event that happened in the news, specifically…

  2. An event or real-life situation that is similar to … is…

  3. This… has happened before.
