Costs of Textmapping

Bullet point The costs associated with implementing Textmapping in the classroom are limited to your materials costs, which will be minimal. There are no special materials to buy. Your cost will be limited to photocopying, and basic supplies such as colored markers and tape or glue stick - many of which you may already have on hand. Below is an example of how you can estimate your yearly costs. Click here for a printable version of this form. []

Estimating Yearly Cost
Item Unit Cost # of Units Total Cost
colored markers $6.50 for 12 markers (12) 12-packs $78.00
glue stick or cellophane tape (Glue stick is cheaper - and it's faster and easier to use) $9.00 for 18 glue sticks 1 pack of 18 $9.00
photocopies $.05 per copy (80 photocopies/week) x 30 weeks

Note: With most textbooks, two facing pages can be photocopied to a single sheet of legal-size (11 inch x 14 inch) paper. In other words, 80 copies accounts for roughly 160 pages - or enough for 8 class-periods worth of 20-page textbook chapters.
Total $207.00
