I can put myself in a character's shoes and imagine how he or she must feel.

I can make informed predictions about what will happen next as I read.

I can compare and contrast the perspectives of two characters on key issues presented in the story we explored this week.

The Connections program brings a Hartford Stage teaching artist into the classroom to explore a piece of literature. Connections is a pre-reading residency; throughout the week, the class will explore the characters, plot, themes and suspense points of the chosen piece of literature using theatre techniques such as tableau, pantomime, role-play, dialogue, monologue, text analysis and storytelling - all before reading the book. At the end of the week, each student will receive their own copy of the book to keep and read.
