"Creating a strong visual picture, graphic organizers support students by enabling them to literally see connections and relationships between facts, information, and terms" Dr. Katherine McKnight.
Using strategy-based instruction is essential in today's teaching and learning, and graphic organizers or thinking charts are a great instructional tool to help students organize their thinking. Also, they are proven to help to facilitate comprehension of information across all content areas. Using both text and visual information, graphic organizers/thinking charts are useful for all learners. With help from Kayte Howell, we created a digital resource of graphic organizers specific to the literacy and instructional goals of Great Falls Public Schools (link below). We used a variety of tools to create, including, Google Drawings, Google Docs, and Adobe. To access the templates, click on the link below.
Digital Graphic Organizer Resource Folder
The folder is "View Only" so you will need to go to "File" and choose "Make a copy" if you would like to add one or more to your own Google Drive. Once you have a copy, you can edit it to your liking, and even share it with students via Google Classroom! I'm more than happy to assist if you have questions or need help!
