Product Description

Want a simple NO PREP instructional tool that helps make your civics and government content accessible to more students? To assist teachers in implementing this powerful strategy our graphic organizer resource provides a series of graphic organizers that uses academic vocabulary and core concepts from social studies curriculum standards presented on the page visually and thoughtfully so students can better understand how the concepts are related. This instructional tool comes in a variety of formats—from webs to charts—that help students think critically, process information they've gathered and organize their ideas. Every social studies teacher would love a tool presenting information with graphics and text that is so powerful and has great impact!
