These 12 graphic organizers provide an important tool for organizing information and building comprehension skills and strategies. They are applicable with many literature or informational text resources.
Graphic organizers can facilitate greater understanding of important concepts and help construct knowledge. Students take information and ideas and organize them into various graphic maps. These visual learning strategies are key to helping students learn and form meaning. The most effective graphic organizers for informational text and literature have been hand-selected for this packet. Included with each graphic organizer is an information page which includes application, applicable standards, tips and suggestions and a fully completed example.
The graphic organizers address the following literary skills:
* identifying character traits
* important words and facts
* analyzing information
* story details
* comparing and contrasting the story
* comparing and contrasting the characters
* outlining a story path
* identifying important facts
* identifying main idea and details
* summarizing details in a biography
Pages in this packet can be printed either in color or grayscale with good results. These graphic organizers work well with a variety of fictional and non-fictional source materials that you may already have. They also work well with my comprehension packets in the "Related Products" section.
Very helpful resource especially for my strugglers.
