Graphic organizers can support all subject areas, languages, and
levels of learning. Our collections for primary (grades K-2) and intermediate
(grades 3-6) are arranged according to the reading strategy, comprehension
skill, or learning process they best facilitate. The majority of the
organizers in both collections can be adapted for use in all classrooms and
for learners of all abilities.
The human brain naturally looks for connections between old and
new information. Additionally, studies have shown that the brain
processes information most efficiently in chunks. Graphic organizers
complement both of these processes by helping students:
Graphic organizers can be used in all phases of learning from
brainstorming ideas to presenting research findings.
Teacher guidance may be necessary when using graphic organizers with early readers.
As readers progress, they may benefit from completing the organizers independently.
Worksheets for Leveled Books, Serial Books,
and Trade Book Lessons
contain at least one graphic organizer specific to each book,
but you can use any graphic organizer with any text to support comprehension.
Reading graphic organizers are translated into Spanish
and French, and can be used for all grade levels.
