Textmapping: A Conference Presentation

This conference presentation guides teachers in the use of text maps to improve reading comprehension in content areas for informational text. Samples and handouts are attached to help guide the use of text maps for expository text. Although the lesson was created for grades 4 and 5 for the use of text maps with the Delta Science Readers for FOSS kits, this lesson could be adapted for other grade levels for science or social studies text. #VegasPBS-RDLA192
