Chalk Talk: How Graphic Organizers Work
Studies have indicated that the use of graphic organizers is a useful and effective tool that connects students’ prior learning to new and increasingly complex ideas and concepts. In the case of reading comprehension, graphic organizers help increase understanding by allowing students to piece together parts of the story, thereby solidifying their comprehension through the use of multisensory inputs, creating a more effective learning environment. Graphically organizing information also helps students track their progress in a way that is visually informative, logical, and rewarding.
