In Bookmapping: Lit Trips and Beyond, Terence W. Cavanaugh and Jerome Burg show you how this dynamic, interactive activity is a cross-curricular tool that helps students not only develop a better understanding of places, cultures, and the books they are reading, but also make connections among the subjects they learn in school. The authors explain how to create bookmaps, how to use existing ones, how to use them for creative writing, and much more. In addition, they provide instructions for mapping programs including Google Earth, share a few sample lesson plans, and discuss classroom management so you can start bookmapping whether you have one computer in your classroom or a computer for every student.
