When designing a text-based lesson, educators must consider many factors that will impact the success of the lesson. One of the most important factors is choosing an appropriate anchor text. An anchor text is the main text that all learning stems from during the lesson or unit.

This module will support educators as they explore questions that help them analyze a proposed text.

In this second part of Volume 2 we focus on the meaning of the word 'misconceptions'and compare it to the general understanding of the meaning of 'errors' and 'mistakes'. These different words have different concepts associated with them. We tend to use the word 'misconception' indiscriminately when talking to colleagues, and more often than not, we are talking about learner errors or mistakes rather than misconceptions.
