Text Connections I believe this trade book Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth, will allows students to make text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections. Students will be able to connect themselves to reading material, peers, and the real world. Students will be able to connect themselves to the characters in the novel, because they are trying to survive the evil depths of middle school. Teenagers often hide who they really are to please peers. Similarities students and the characters share are they are yearning for acceptances from peers. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a collection of books of a growing boy who experience everyday struggles of becoming a teenager. In the novel Greg doesn’t tell anyone he is being bullied.

All of these connections will allow students to relate to the novel in an entertaining, but realistic way.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
