Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Visualizing how ideas fit together helps learners construct meaning and strengthens their recall. Graphic organizers outsource the memory demands of a task by mimicking the brain's mental schema, supporting learners' cognition and, in turn, their literacy skills.
Use It In Your Learning Environment
There are a variety of graphic organizers, from contrastive to concept maps, that can be used across content areas. For learners with low Working Memory, graphic organizers help structure and track information, and can support Composition. When learners record and review their notes in graphic organizers, they are able to recall this information more easily because they have repeatedly worked with it. This also helps develop their Foundational Reading Skills such as inferencing, as learners can more easily connect information across a text with their own Background Knowledge. Products can develop graphic organizers that can be manipulated—layout, shapes, colors, fonts—which can provide even more support. Being able to personalize the graphic organizers can engage learners to take ownership over their own learning.
