The Director helps you manage all of the terms you learn about in your text.
For narrative texts, the focus is generally on character.
For expository texts, the focus is generally on concepts.
The Key Terms
I. Entities – Who/What are they?
II. Actions – What is happening?/What are the entities doing?
History can often take a narrative perspective.
The character and concept maps guide you as you read and allow you to store key information that can be used in written and oral responses, or for review purposes for tests or quizzes.
You should also connect the Director to the Joiner to see if the entities or actions remind you of other things you know.
