Graphic Organizers Help Improve Comprehension

We often utilize graphic organizers in our class to aid students in organizing their thoughts while preparing to summarize a reading or to answer an open-ended question. This is the graphic organizer that we completed during whole group reading instructional time today. The students filled in an identical organizer in their individual Learning Logs.

When used in effective ways, graphic organizers have a great amount of potential for fostering learning in a variety of different areas in education. The most prevalent educational areas that are positively affected by the effectiveness of graphic organizers are comprehension, reading and vocabulary knowledge. A number of studies have been conducted that indicate that graphic organizers have the ability to improve reading and vocabulary knowledge and understanding exponentially.

Ask your child about filling in their graphic organizer. This graphic organizer can help prepare the student for the Lesson 10 test.
