What's the greatest value you attach to incorporating graphic organizers?


Discussions around graphic organizers have surfaced and resurfaced over the last several months across several of the communities including Reading and Writing, Numeracy, and Students with Disabilities. Those discussions left me wondering how graphic organizers are incorporated into instruction and your perspective or thoughts of how they improve learners' acquisition and recall of information. This poll provides an opportunity to quickly indicate your most often perceived value for incorporating graphic organizers. Of course, you may have other perspectives than the few that are listed in the poll and I'd like to hear those perspectives as well. 

In the future we might have a more focused activity on graphic organizers such as a webinar and follow-up moderated discussion.

Send along your thoughts.

Happy Friday!
