characterstudy.jpg"A picture is worth 1000 words." When students are juggling new concepts, a graphic organizer can be an excellent teaching aid.
Why do they work?
Random facts are quickly lost. However, the brain's ability to store pictures is unlimited. Since the brain likes to chunk information, the graphic organizer complements the way the brain naturally works.
When do they work?
Graphic organizers will be beneficial to students whenever they are given new information. They can be used to sequence, brainstorm and organize. During reading and listening students should be encouraged to graphically organize new information.
How do they work?
The graphic organizers provided here are, for the most part, plain in appearance. Allow students to create their own look to these organizers whenever possible. The brain remembers more when personal creativity has been invested in a project.
