Text Mapping Plus: Improving Comprehension through Supported Retellings
Lapp, Diane; Fisher, Douglas; Johnson, Kelly
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v53 n5 p423-426 Feb 2010
Modeled in this column is the teaching of a text mapping routine that supports students reading and remembering the salient features of the text. The authors renamed the story mapping technique "text mapping plus" because they found that as students added relational words and graphics to their maps their retells of both fiction and nonnarrative were fuller, more accurate, and shared with greater confidence.
