Digital mapping

Digital Mapping

Digital Mapping combines the critical thinking and hands-on process of Project-Based Learning with Close Reading strategies to engage students in a rich analysis of rigorous text. This combination is fueled by passion and discovery, allowing for high levels of motivation and commitment.

Project Based Learning

Close Reading

Digital Mapping


Close reading

Close Reading

In the process of Close Reading, students read to uncover layers of meaning that ultimately lead to deep comprehension. Close Reading ensures the level of learning needed for students to apply critical thinking skills and use the information gathered to complete a task, or create something new.


Common goals of close reading

Common Goals of Close Reading

  • Evaluate text structure and extract significant information

  • Examine rhetorical features and academic language

  • Ask critical questions regarding individuals, events, concepts and ideas

  • Determine how ideas are interconnected and related

  • Analyze key themes

  • Draw conclusions and make judgments

  • Analyze writing techniques


Project based learning

Project-Based Learning

The project-based learning model allows for greater depth and understanding of significant content. Originally thought of as the “learning by doing” model, it develops 21st century skills while promoting creativity and innovation. The collaborative structure increases communication and maximizes authentic engagement.


Ultimate goal meaningful learning

Ultimate Goal: Meaningful Learning

Learning can vary from highly rote to highly meaningful. Creativity often results from very high levels of meaningful learning. Digital Mapping empowers learners to extend the creative thinking process and access different levels of knowledge.

Novak, 2008


What about c ognitive r igor

What about cognitive rigor?

  • Bloom—What type of thinking is needed to complete a task?

  • Webb—How deeply do you have to understand the content to successfully interact with it? How complex or abstract is the content?

From “What are some of the implications for the transition to Common Core Standards?” by Karen K. Hess National Center for Assessment, Dover, NH, 2009

Webb’s Four Levels of Cognitive Complexity

  • Level 1: Recall and Reproduction

  • Level 2: Skills & Concepts

  • Level 3: Strategic Thinking

  • Level 4: Extended Thinking

Push Cards and Text Analysis

  • Expository Text

  • Text Prep:

  • Overview of text structure and content – what are you reading and how is it organized?

  • Are visuals and/or graphic images provided?

  • Do headings and/or sub-headings provide any clues?

  • Is there text located in the marginalia?

  • Is there a summary provided for this text?

  • Text Check:

  • In this paragraph or section, are any words highlighted or written in italics?

  • What context can be used to clarify meaning?

  • Is there a visual image related to this content?

  • What is the main idea of this section and how does it relate to the overall concept?

  • What evidence or details can be found to support the main idea?

  • Do a question-connection check!

  • Text Wrap-Up:

  • Review the main idea and details of this selection.

  • What final questions do you have related to this content?

  • How does this information support what you already know about the world?

  • Reread the assigned text from start to finish.

Project based learning tasks

Project-Based Learning Tasks

DOK 1-What word occurs often throughout the reading using the root “part”? (Define and use this root.)

DOK 2-What physical properties are associated with solids, liquids and gasses? (Collect and display this information using effective organizational techniques. )

DOK 3-How can you distinguish a chemical change from a physical change?(Compare and explain this phenomena in terms of concepts.)

DOK 4 – What kind of a story could you design for a young child to help them understand the changing states of matter? (Synthesize the new content and design your story using effective media elements.)
