Graphic organisers......visual method of organising and summarising information / help student organise disjointed information in a structured way / facilitate generation and development of ideas / expedite the construction of knowledge / aid the learning process / provide active involvement to engage the kinaesthetic learner / work best when used by small groups (pairs and triads) / particularly powerful when groups are structured so that (i) each member has a leadership role/function e.g. Recorder, Researcher, Timekeeper, Clarifier, Turntaker, Summariser, Reporter (ii) resources are shared in the group i.e. one worksheet per group...provide a high quality teaching and learning methodology for mixed ability classroom i.e. students with diverse abilities can work together where each student can make a real contribution to overall learning of group / accommodate needs of students with differing learning styles & intelligences...
Using Graphic Organisers......may be used at all stages of the learning process: Pre-teaching a topic Introducing to a topic Teaching a topic Assessment for Learning Scaffolding Learning Independent Learning Study Revision Mixed Ability VAK Left Brain / Right Brain

Step Ladder If a topic involves a linear chain of events, with a definite beginning and end, use the ladder.
The desire for gold led Francisco Pizarro to explore and conquer the Inca empire of South America. However, his conquest of the Incas was a bloody one, filled with violence and double-crossing treachery. After years of intense fighting and explorations, Pizarro was murdered over the land he had conquered. 1470 Jan 1531 April 1531 August 1533 1540 June 1541
Stair Steps If a topic involves plotting a course
Chain of Linked Events Use this graphic organiser if a topic involves a series of interlinked events. TOPIC COMMENT Starting Idea
Sequence Chart If a topic involves a sequence of events leading from one to another use the Sequence Chart

Funnel When a topic involves synthesising, conclusions, definitions, reducing a lot of information to its core.
Fish Bone Use this graphic organiser whYen summarising a topic or when investigating multiple cause and effects factors associated with a complex topic and how they interrelate.
Ancient Ireland Burial Tombs Celts Houses Religion Life Religion
Brain Drops Use this graphic to create ideas. Ideas
Cross Classification Chart This approach can be used to condensing and organising data about the traits of many items for comparison.
Cross Classification Chart Fianna Fail in 30’S Inter Party Governme nt Cumann na Gael Lemass This approach can be used to condensing and organising data about the traits of many items for comparison. Church and State Social change Consti tution Economy Anglo Irish New State
Venn Diagram (2 Circles) Use this graphic if the task involves examining the similarities and differences between two items
Communist Collectivisation State Ownership & Industry Policy of Influencing Foreign Nations eg Maoist China Compare and Contrast Two Political Leaders Joesf Stalin Adolf Hitler Fascist Private Enterprise Aggressive Foreign Expansion Policy Lebensraum Militarism Dictatorship Nationalism Propaganda Secret Police State Projects Anti-Semitism
Venn Diagram (3 Circles) Use this graphic if the task involves examining the similarities and differences between three items.

The Tri Pie If the task involves analysing and higher order thinking, or helping students to expand their thinking. E.G. Was the ratification of the Anglo-Irish Treaty the only cause of the Irish Civil War? YESNO Maybe So!
Starburst (all points covered) This is a visual memory aid and used where there are a number of key points. Use for any key person in History.
Starburst This graphic can be used analyse the 5 W’s (Who, Where, Why, What, When) Who Where WhyWhat When Story
Matrix Q 1Q 2 Answer Q 3Q 4 Answer Q 5Q 6 Answer Methodology: Teacher asks questions and students research and answer questions.
Given below are some of the important themes of the Holocaust. Make brief but informative notes on each. How did the Nazis discriminate against the Jews? How did some Jews manage to avoid detection by Nazis? What were the ghettos? What were conditions like there? Why were Jews picked on? What were conditions like in the camps? How were Jews transported to the camps? What happened when they arrived? What evidence have you used? Is it reliable? Do you need more? How were people killed in the camps? When and how were the camps liberated? What evidence can you find of people apart from Jews being persecuted by Nazis? What examples are there of people helping Jews? Why do you think German people allowed the Holocaust to happen? What is the relevance of the Holocaust today?
