Organizing Information Skills

Organizing Information is a proven reading strategy that supports the varying learning styles in our classrooms. Charts, tables, maps, and webs activate our students' minds as they visually represent course content. Graphic organizers help learners conceptualize new information while providing opportunities for evaluation and application of core concepts.

Students can use graphic organizers to chunk, sequence, categorize, compare, contrast, and analyze information. It is recommended that students create their own organizers and do most of the work. Research suggests that graphic organizers are most effective when students have an opportunity to discuss, apply, and or reflect on the ideas in the organizer.
