What is a Graphic Organizer?

A graphic organizer is a tool or framework that allows you to collect, relate, and/or present information visually. They can take many forms, and include favorites such as the Venn diagram, story webs, and concept maps. Information presented in an easy-to-read format can enhance thinking, spark new ideas, and maintain focus on the topic or task at hand. A graphic organizer is intended to provide structure to ideas or concepts, making it easy to collect or add information. Once completed, it serves as a presentation or study model.
