The use of graphic organisers makes it easier for students
to comprehend and remember what they read. Graphic organisers help students

  • visualise abstract content

  • connect new ideas to previous

  • identify main ideas and
    supporting details

  • understand sequences

  • recognise relationships

  • focus on specific elements

  • compare ideas and concepts

  • recall and retrieve

Scientifically based research shows that using graphic
organisers leads to improved students performance on assessments and enhanced
critical thinking skills. The US National Reading Panel (2000) cited graphic
and semantic organisers as one of the most effective ways to help students
improve reading comprehension.

Graphic Organisers for Reading is one workbook resource every
teacher needs. Here are 60 graphic organisers for fiction and nonfiction, literary
