Use this chart to help your students utilize informational texts and current events. It would also be useful in analyzing science experiments or for taking notes during a speech, video, presentation, lesson, or sermon. It could also be used for planning an informational presentation or project.
Three pages are included with this product. One page leaves the graphic organizer blank, the next gives guiding questions, and the third gives usage ideas and directions.
Use the questions on the second page to help guide thinking. These questions are only a guide so do not be afraid to have students create their own! This may be posted in public way while students work on their individual sheets or each student may desire his/her own copy.
Use as part of your assessment cycle of pretesting, checking for understanding or posttesting.
