Graphic Organizers

​Graphic Organizers can help students develop more effective reading comprehension and pre-writing skills which lead to increased content knowledge.  The organizers below are those I have used in Graphic Organizer workshops in Volusia County.  Please download them and edit them as you wish.  Since they are in Word format you can add your own topic information (titles) or any data you believe will assist your students.
Beneath each organizer name is a brief description.   To open or download the organizer simply click on the title. 

Anticipation Guide - Helps to activate prior knowledge and focus students on the key elements of reading.

APPARTS - An analytical tool for identifying the author, place & time, prior knowledge, audience, reason, main idea, and significance of a document.

Argument Chart - This chart helps students identify the arguments and supporting details of an author's work.

Cause-Effect Chart - Helps students see the relationship between the two.
