Quick Link Tip: Mapping Elements of a Story from Read Write Think

      If you are working on story mapping, here is an additional way to teach the concept while integrating technology. These are student online interactive organizers to map elements of a story from ReadWriteThink, co-sponsored by IRA/NCTE. After teaching and reviewing the traditional structure of story mapping, upper grade teachers could use this to expand and focus on aspects of a story to further develop on their foundational understanding.  It would be great to show on the projection screen to illustrate different ways of thinking about mapping in relation to reading and applying to writing independently. There are options to map the setting of the story, a character, the conflict of the story, and the resolution.
