  • If you were to tell another person about the text read/viewed/heard in a few sentences, what would you tell them?
  • What is the main theme? How is it connected to the world beyond the text?
  • In what significant ways does this text relate to/elaborate on the topic that you have been investigating?
  • Can you create a metaphor for the text that you have read?
