Graphic Organizer for Graphic Organizers - what is a graphic organizer
A graphic organizer is a tool for collecting and presenting information visually.
• Titles, headings, and/or labels • Specific locations for information (pictures, symbols, or words) • Short descriptions (bullets or limited sentences) • Adequate spacing
One non-example of a graphic organizer would be a long string of text (like this one). Cramming a lot of words into a space and expecting someone to be able to read it all and RETAIN it is not the best strategy for visual learners or for quick sharing of information. How many PowerPoint presentations have you seen with big blocks of text on the slide and nothing else? Can you honestly say that you were engaged with those presentations?
