´╗┐Teacher Winnie stands in front of a smart board. A picture of two horses by a tipi appears.

Teacher Winnie is in her twenties, long with straight brown hair. She wears glasses and a blue Homework Zone T-shirt.

She says HI, TEACHER WINNY HERE
TO TELL YOU HOW TO WRITE A
BETTER BOOK REPORT.
LET'S GO TO THE SMART BOARD.
NOW WHEN WE TALK ABOUT WRITING A
BOOK REPORT WE'RE REALLY ASKING
YOU TO NOT ONLY WRITE ABOUT WHAT
THE BOOK IS ABOUT BUT MAYBE MAKE
A COUPLE OF CONNECTIONS THAT
WILL MAKE YOUR BOOK REPORT A
LITTLE BETTER.
SO THE FIRST ONE WE WANT TO TALK
ABOUT IS THE TEXT TO TEXT
CONNECTION SO LET'S CLICK ON
THAT AND IT SAYS THIS BOOK
REMINDS ME OF ANOTHER BOOK.
SO WHAT OTHER BOOKS HAVE YOU
READ THAT ARE SIMILAR?
SO IF I WAS READING A BOOK ABOUT
SCARDY SQUIRREL I MIGHT SAY THIS
BOOK REMINDS ME OF ANOTHER BOOK
BY MELANIE WATTS AND YOU COULD
AND IT COULD REMIND YOU OF
ANOTHER SCARDY SQUIRREL BOOK.
BUT BOOK TO BOOK, IT'S A TEXT TO
TEXT CONNECTION.
ANOTHER CONNECTION YOU CAN TALK
ABOUT IS A TEXT TO SELF SO WHAT
DOES THE BOOK MAKE YOU THINK OF?
SO WE'RE GOING TO CLICK ON THAT
AND IT SAYS THIS BOOK REMINDS ME
OF, AND WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR
PERSONAL EXPERIENCES TO TALK
ABOUT.
SO IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DIARY
OF A WIMPY KID WE MIGHT WANT TO
SAY THIS BOOK REMINDS ME OF A
TIME WHEN I HAD TO GO TO SCHOOL
AND I HAD TO TALK TO MY FRIENDS.
SO SOMETHING THAT THE BOOK MAKES
YOU THINK OF OR SOMETHING THAT
HAS HAPPENED TO YOU.
AND LAST WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT A
TEXT TO WORLD CONNECTION AND
WHEN WE TALK ABOUT TEXT TO WORLD
CONNECTION IT MIGHT BE AN
EXPERIENCE THAT YOU DIDN'T HAVE
BUT IT COULD BE SOMETHING THAT
YOU KNOW ABOUT.
SO IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HARRY
POTTER FOR EXAMPLE WE COULD SAY
THIS BOOK MAKES ME THINK ABOUT
WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF WE HAD
TO LIVE AT SCHOOL OR WHAT IT
WOULD BE LIKE TO RIDE ON A
TRAIN.
IT MIGHT NOT BE EXPERIENCES YOU
HAVE BUT IT COULD BE SOMETHING
YOU CAN RELATE TO.
SO BY ADDING ALL THESE THINGS -
A TEXT TO TEXT CONNECTION OR A
TEXT TO SELF CONNECTION OR
HAVING A TEXT TO WORLD
CONNECTION THEY HELP MAKE YOUR
BOOK REPORT A LITTLE BETTER.
I'M TEACHER WINNY, I HOPE HOPE
THIS HAS HELPED YOU MAKE A
BETTER BOOK REPORT.
THAN YOU FOR WATCHING.
