Graphic Organizers 1. The human continuum Scale -questions about Graphic Organizers! 2. What are Graphic Organizers? 3. Different Types of Graphic Organizers and their uses 4. Benefits of graphic organizers to student learning 5. Questions and comments Human Continuum Scale Lets first find out what you know about Graphic Organizers and how you feel about using Graphic Organizers! Place yourself on the human continuum 1.Do you know a lot about Graphic organizers? 2.Do you understand how Graphic organizers work? 3.Are you skeptical about using Graphic organizers ? What are Graphic Organizers? A graphic organizer is a visual and graphic method that illustrates the relationships between facts, terms, and/or ideas within a learning task. Graphic organizers are also sometimes called knowledge maps, concept maps, story maps, cognitive organizers, advance organizers, or concept diagrams. Brainstorming : Concept map Sequencing: Continuum scale, events chain Comparing and contrasting: Venn diagram, compare and contrast matrix Different Types of Graphic Organizers and their uses Analyzing: Fishbone map, spider map, tree map Evaluating: P-M-I, K-W-L Benefits of graphic organizers to student learning Development of Higher Level Thought 1. Graphic organizers almost always integrate higher-level thinking. 2. Because students are thinking at a higher level they can more easily pick out uncertainties, the need for clarification, and information that is missing. 3. The format often encourages students to expand beyond the source(s): to access prior knowledge, to predict, question and to examine further. 4. Encourages students to think about information in new ways. Benefits of graphic organizers to student learning Applicability For a Wide Range of Learners 1. Students with different abilities can usually work together meaningfully on a graphic organizer. 2. More sophisticated learners are often challenged by graphic organizers because the format gives them an opportunity to use prior knowledge and real-world applications. 3. Organizers are often easily modified for special needs students. Benefits of graphic organizers to student learning Increased Language Development 1. Higher-level thinking brings about more use of language. 2. Students have more exposure to the language of thought. 3. New content vocabulary is clearly presented on the organizer. 4. Students must incorporate their own words when summarizing the information presented on an organizer. Benefits of graphic organizers to student learning Greater retention for all learners 1. When students work together on a graphic organizer, they are saying, doing, and teaching each other. 2. They are also changing written and/or oral information to visual information that is important to them. 3. It is more useful, and more fun, to study from notes on organizers than from traditional notes. Benefits of graphic organizers to student learning More equitable assessment measures 1. After using an organizer for instructional purposes, teachers can use graphic organizers for assessment purposes. 2. The theoretical and intentional meaning of a lesson is more clear to students who study from graphic organizers. 3. Helps students to review concepts and demonstrate their understanding.
