Grade 3 Familiar Texts for Instructionally Embedded Model States

DLM presents an instructional resource called "Anchor-Read-Apply" which assists in teaching students to comprehend text through listening or reading. Three learning modules here will help you learn to use the Anchor-Read-Apply resource, and additional documents (grade-level Anchor-Read-Apply Lesson Supports) offer specific lesson ideas linked to each of the DLM Essential Elements in Reading Literature and Reading Information Text.

More Information about DLM source books can be found in the Dynamic Learning Maps ELA Source Books (pdf).
