Graphic Organizers: Graphic organizers are visual thinking tools that demonstrate relationships between facts, concepts, or ideas, and guide your thinking as you design the map or diagram. Graphic organizers can help to visualize and construct ideas, organize and/or sequence information, plan what to write, increase reading comprehension, brainstorm, organize problems and solutions, compare and contrast ideas, show cause and effect, and more. The ability to color-code thoughts in a picture can help significantly in understanding and remembering the information. Dr. Parrott uses graphic organizers in notes, assignments and they are required on all crib sheets in preparation for every test/exam.
