The effectiveness of graphic organizers has been studied. One study focused on three classifications of secondary students enrolled in content area classes: students with learning disabilities remedial students students in regular education The results of three separate experiments indicated that graphic organizers, whether teacher-directed, student- directed with text references, or student-directed with clues, produced significantly higher performance than self-study for each group of students. &db=PubMed&list_uids= &dopt=Citation

Now, in a small group, please create a graphic organizer that can be used with students. Your group may decide on the type of diagram you use or create, as well as the content area being addressed.
Students should be able to use metacognition to determine when they dont know or understand a concept or idea and what to do to help themselves internalize the new knowledge. Through learning various types of graphic organizers, students are able to have a fix it strategy to assist in clarifying their own thinking.
Teachers may expose students to additional graphic organizers. –examples shown are only some Teachers can think outside of the box when choosing graphic organizers. - The more a student connects with a graphic organizer, the easier it will be for them to internalize the information.
