I would create a “worksheet” that highlights important points to take away from the reading, key vocabulary, and significant dates to know. This guide would help students stay on track with their reading and pay attention, looking for the answers to the questions on their sheet. The road map would also help the students in the post-reading phase when reflecting on what they have learned. Additionally, this reading road map may be used in the classroom when the students are preparing for a test/quiz/final assignment on the unit.
