Table of Contents
Bold Print, Italics, Highlighted, Underlined
Your students will get an 8 page article about the Titanic to text map using the skills they

EVERY skill has a label, an anchor chart, an interactive activity and a self-evaluation tag.

I have included a Text Mapping Key (one in color and one black and white where students can color code it themselves), a Table of Contents (already filled out), a blank Table of Contents in case you would prefer to teach the skills in a different order, self-evaluation tags for students to use after each skill, photos of each skill and photos of the the Titanic Text Mapping Practice Article to help you understand how to put the interactive notebook together.
