Peace Through Fiction and "text connections" reading theory

Peace Through Fiction uses the reading theory called "text connections." Text connections happen when the reader makes a personal connection from a story to something in his/her own life. "Good readers learn how to read deeper, with more meaning, when they make real-world connections to the text" -- reflecting on themselves and the people they know.
