PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students in my mass media class had a hard time understanding inverted pyramid style, even with great graphic organizers that show the traditional upside down triangle cut into sections. One of the special education teachers suggested using a format like the main idea/details charts students were already familiar with. I added some arrows to help students remember that the most important facts give way to less important ones, and put them in a more rounded format than the original and labeled the boxes to reflect what would be found in a traditional inverted pyramid chart. It resulted in this easy-to-understand visual model.

This chart is used as both a model and a graphic organizer in my class. It can be used to find information in a news article or organize information to write an article of your own. It could be useful for a journalism class, a current issues class, or even a reading class.

The more a student understands the format of the writing, the greater the chances are of students retaining information and comprehending what they've read.

*Credit to Mrs. Margaret Kaniewski for the idea of this format
*Credit to Tracey Kyles of TK Graphic Design for the fancy arrows
