From the Inside Flap

The Teacher’s BIG BOOK of Graphic Organizers

Research has shown that visually organizing information helps students better comprehend newly acquired material. Graphic organizers create a strong visual picture for students and support their ability to learn facts, information, and terms. Students are literally able to see connections and relationships between facts, terms, and ideas.

In this value-packed resource, veteran educa- tor Katherine McKnight shows teachers how to tap into the power of graphic organizers, and offers 100 organizers—more than any other book on the market—that support success in the classroom. All the graphic organizers offered in this book promote active learning, which is central to effective learning. Using the organizers as guides, students are prompted to ask questions and are encouraged to apply critical thinking skills.

The book’s graphic organizers help teachers

  • Support teaching and student comprehension in learning new material
  • Develop vibrant curriculum plans
  • Assess classroom achievement
  • Build students’ learning skills

The book is filled with dynamic graphic organizers that can be used before, during, and after learning activities across the content areas and contains easy-to- follow instructions on how to apply and adapt each organizer. In addition, the author has included helpful strategies for teachers who want to create their own graphic organizers for different grade levels.
