These multi-purpose Common Core Aligned Informational Text Graphic Organizers can be utilized in a number of ways in your classroom. They are excellent resources to use whenever you’re studying an informational text.
These are not your basic, fill-in-the-blanks graphic organizers. Rather, they have your students work closely with the text, using in-depth questions to spark critical-thinking skills that are a must in middle school. You won't find a blank box with "What's the main idea?" in the middle - this resource is much, much more in-depth than that!
We know you’ll be able to utilize this resource for years to come – you can even use it across the curriculum in various other subjects. Enjoy!
