In secondary schools, many remedial reading teachers are beginning to work with texts students use in their content area classes. Reading teachers are doing this because they feel that students do not transfer skills they learn in reading classes to help themselves understand and study content area texts. Many reading teachers, however, are not always familiar with information in content area texts, especially if they use books from vocational technical areas. On eway reading teachers can begin to familiarize themselves with these texts its to create netwrok diagrams or maps of the information (Dansereau, 1978; Anderson & Armbruster, 1980). We have found that such diagrams not only help us learn new information but also provide us with a tool for planning instruction.
