We use graphic organizers to help us quickly and accurately arrange information in an effort to make our learning more efficient.

Graphic organizers can really help students understand complex topics very quickly. They are a great tool that all teachers should be using with their classes. It's often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. That is a good way to understand the importance and long term use of graphic organizers. Many scientists often say the first thing that they look at, when evaluating research, are the graphs associated with them. Graphs are similarly to our organizer concept because they visually allow to understand data quickly. Many students find that as they start to use organizers more, they come to rely on them for all aspects of their education.

We put together a furious series of organizers. as you scroll down the pages you will come to find well of 500 organizers at your disposal. Make sure that you turn on the "background" printing setting for your printer. Better yet, just make sure to Print Preview each one before you go. We wouldn't want you to waste ink or paper.
