Use Story Maps for Better Reading Comprehension

Today, anyone who wants to read an article or a book can do so quickly. Most can search for reading materials at the click of a mouse or on library/classroom shelves. But even engaged readers sometimes face information overload. For example, young or beginning readers may have trouble remembering the important elements of a story. If you're a teacher, you understand this dilemma and likely use multiple resources to help your students understand what they read. A story map is just one resource that helps young learners with reading comprehension.

5 Simple Teacher Appreciation Ideas for Kids

My mom is one of those amazing people who have chosen to be a middle school math and science teacher. After teaching for the last 22 years, she is retiring at the end of May. I may be biased, but she is truly a remarkable teacher. She works long hours, voluntarily tutors students before and after school, and insists on testing with explanation-type questions as opposed to multiple choice questions because she feels it is a better way to assess student understanding.
