Description

The use of graphic organisers makes it easier for students to




  • visualise abstract content




  • plan for an essay, report,
    speech or explanation of any topic studied




  • examine concepts closely and
    represent them in a variety of ways




  • recognise and show patterns or
    relationships




  • compare, contrast and connect
    ideas, steps, topics or events




  • break apart, and explain or
    demonstrate the steps of any process




  • show understandings of any
    concepts or process




  • tackle the study of a topic or
    idea




  • relate new ideas to previous
    knowledge and to real life




  • communicate discoveries,
    results or thought processes.




Good research in many subject areas shows that using
graphic organisers leads to improved student performance on assessments and
enhanced critical thinking skills. Such tools help students think about their
thinking and think about their learning … and lay out ideas in a way to show
what they know. Organising visually is a way to process, analyse and synthesise
ideas so as to understand them more deeply.
