Thinking diagrams are visuals that students use to graphically organize ideas and enhance their learning. These visual model includes eight different organizers with a different purpose:

• Brainstorming/Revelations/Defining
• Identifying Part/Whole relationships

• Classifying/Grouping

• Comparing/Contrasting

• Analyzing Causes/Effects

• Displaying Analogies/Parallels

• Describing/Explaining/Elaborating
• Sequencing/Ordering

Educators can use these visuals to teach across the curriculum. Students improve complex thinking skills and demonstrate increased student comprehension. The benefits of visual tools have been demonstrated through research and class observation. IMPROVES NOTE TAKING & HELP STUDY SKILLS.
