CREATING A READING ROAD MAP INSTRUCTIONS
A Reading Road Map guides students through the reading process by demonstrating howreading rate and the reading process varies depending on the text and the reader’s strategies, background knowledge, and interest. You will create a Reading Road Map based on the assigned reading from Macbeth. An Exemplar will be provided. However, you will recreate the reading road map to assess your understanding of the text using the following question stems:
Complete the assigned reading of Macbeth Chapters 3,4 and 5. This assignment is due by Sunday, February 21, 2021.
1) Determine which areas/details you want to emphasize throughout reading.
2) Begin your Reading Road Map (RRM) by creating a Google document. (Do not use the Teacher’s example RRM as your base document.
3) Start a new document, as you will be creating your own RRM.)
4) Type the title of the road map.
5) Add shapes to your document. To add a shape, click the Insert tab and click Shapes. Select a shape and then click and drag to draw the shape.
6) Drag the shape to its location and right click; select
7) Add Text. Now you can type your information in the shape.
8) Repeat steps 5–6, inserting arrows to depict the correct steps to follow.
9) Review the entire RRM to make sure it flows properly.
10) Complete the RRM by filling in the correct answers on each shape.
11) Save the document as Firstname_“Lastname_RRM.doc” (or .docx).
Students learn how to adjust their reading speed and purpose for reading. Teachers are able to work with individual students while other students are working on their road maps. These mini conferences allow the teacher to determine who is struggling and offer immediate advice.Students say they like this strategy because they feel more involved in the learning process: the teacher is not the one doing all the talking. Use this as your study guide for future assessments and critical summaries. All of the information is at your fingertips!
The following document is an example of what your RRM could look like. Do not use thematerial or the shapes as a template—create your own RRM.
