    SequenceGraphic Organizers

    1. the following of one thing after another; succession. 2. order of succession: a list ofbooks in alphabetical sequence. 3. a continuous or connected series: a sonnet sequence. 4.something that follows; a subsequent event; result; consequence (Webster's. p 1747).

    consistency, connection, connectedness; continuity, seriality, sequentialness,consecutiveness, orderliness; hierarchy, gradation, subordination, rank, place; following,coming after; descent, lineage, line; series; order, order of succession; progression,procession, rotation (Chapman, pp 29, 34, 37)

    Sequencing Use when prioritizing elements from most important to least important; relative position or

    standing; a series of things or persons; or an orderly arrangement from 1st to last. See: Continuum Scale,Cycle, Bridging Snapshots, & Series of Events Chain. Use to list, compare, analyze, and synthesize

    information about subjects, concepts, topics, etc. See: Synectics, Venn Diagram, Network Tree,

    Compare/Contrast Matrix, PMI, Questions, T-Chart, & KWLH


    Sequencing Use for time lines showing historical events or ages (grade levels in school), degrees of

    something (weight), shades of meaning (Likert scales), or ratings scales (achievement in school). Key frame

    questions: What is being scaled? What are the end points? (Pathways, 1997) See: Network Tree, Ranking,

    Cycle, Bridging Snapshots, Series of Events Chain, & Problem/Solution Outline

    Sequencing Use to show how a series of events interact to produce a set of results again and again (weatherphenomena, cycles of achievement and failure, the life cycle). Key frame questions: What are the critical

    events in the cycle? How are they related? In what ways are they self-reinforcing? (NCREL, 1988) See:Network Tree, Ranking, Fishbone Map, Continuum Scale, Bridging Snapshots, Series of Events Chain, &

    Problem/Solution Outline


    Sequencing Use to see changes over time, reveal the sequence of step-by-step methods, illustrate complex

    processes, and show cause and effect. See: Network Tree, Cycle, Series of Events Chain, &Problem/Solution Outline

  • 29/6/2014 Graphic Organizers - Sequence 3/5

    Sequencing Use to describe the stages of something (the life cycle of a primate); the steps in a linear

    procedure (how to neutralize an acid); a sequence of events (how feudalism led to the formation of nationstates); or the goals, actions, and outcomes of a historical figure or character in a novel (the rise an fall ofNapoleon). Key frame questions: What is the object, procedure, or initiating event? What are the stages or

    steps? How do they lead to one another? What is the final outcome? (NCREL, 1988)See: Network Tree, Ranking, Fishbone Map, Human Interaction Outline, Continuum Scale, Cycle, Bridging

    Snapshots, & Problem/Solution Outline


    Sequencing Use to show the problem solving process by defining the components of the problem andattempted solutions. Basis elements of the problem may vary, but the process is similar. (NCREL, 1988) See:

    Site Map - A list of all the pages with annotations, yes, all of the pages on this site.

    Teachers - Make sure you check out the Assignments section which provides exercises,projects, support resources, and rubrics.

    Quotes - New links and lots of new quotes about life, art, and philosophy.

    Historical and Cultural Context - provides an overview of art movements andthe context in which they developed. We have not covered every movement or period,rather selected snippets to help provide students with an opportunity to explore theelements that have influenced other artists in their quest for expressing personal voice. Aswith all of our work, this site remains a work in progress.

    Wow, validation.

    Check out to find more educational resources, lesson plans, news updates,and more.
