Graphic organizers convert complex information into manageable chunks. They make content area information more accessible to English Language Learners (ELLs). They include webs, Venn diagrams, charts, and other visual tools that enable your ELLs to better comprehend and organize information that is taught. This will further allow your ELLs to develop their higher level thinking skills and promote their creativity.

Each week I will share the different graphic organizers that teachers can effectively utilize in their classroom instruction. The first graphic organizer I will introduce is a modification of the KWL Chart that many teachers have heard of. The visual is self-explanatory. This is certainly a useful tool! Enjoy!
