What is a Graphic Organizer?

Graphic organizers are useful tools for students at any grade level and with multiple abilities. They come in a variety of styles and are often given specific names according to the information they present (e.g. Story Map, Concept Wheel). A graphic organizer is a way to organize information pictorially. Students benefit from graphic organizers when arranging their ideas visually as they gather data and through the planning process of a task.
