Book maps are a great visualizing tool teachers can use as part of brainstorming, drafting, or teaching the revision process. Book mapping helps students work on making text connections, synthesis level thinking, and thinking metacognitively. Book maps are also good back to school tools or first day activities. This is great for high school language arts classes or secondary English teachers.
