What are the values of graphic organizers?
Help students learn and remember. See connections among different items of information. Note-taking aid. D Fisher, D Zike and N Frey. CN+ (Aug. 07), 2. ***

Note: If you need examples of graphic organizers, type "graphic organizer" in Google and you will find 1,999,000 Web sites dealing with graphic organizers. You will have more examples than you need.

What is a "foldable" graphic organizer?
Fold a 8 1/2" X 11" paper in many ways and record connected pieces of information on each field. Good way to review for tests. You can even paste two folded pieces of paper together. D. Fisher, D Zike and N Frey. CN+ (Aug. 07), p. 1-12. ***
