Hey Class! Today We are going to be learning about story mapping! What's story mapping you ask? Story mapping is a strategy of using graphic organizers to help students understand stories and books!
Let's Learn how to implement story mapping into our curriculum! Some students will show you how it is done!
My teacher always creates a visual organizer to help me understand the story! It is always on one piece of paper and has thought sections for Characters, setting, plot, and theme! Sometimes there are more area but those sections help the most!
I work better in a group so sometimes my teacher lets us do a giant story map! But sometimes we do individual maps for my friends who prefer to work alone
My teacher reads through the whole story first, then we can go back and read trouble areas and ask questions! She helps my classmates who need more help and then we all discuss our findings at the end of the activity!
Story mapping is easy to implement and can be easily changed to fit your class's needs!
Story Mapping is useful because it gives students a visual aid to shorten a story to be understandable
