More Free Graphic Organizers for Studying and Analyzing



Introduction

The free graphic organizers that I offer on this page come from the collection of 50 More STUDYizers, the successor of 50 STUDYizers, which has been extremely well-received over the last couple of years—thanks to you and our colleagues.

During the time that I always take to see what’s available online, one thing in particular struck me as being rather strange. There seems to be very little in the way of internet-themed graphic organizers available anywhere.

With that in mind, I’ve included 6 organizers for Project Internet. These maps focus on the web as a primary research tool. One of these even includes the format (along with an example) for properly citing an online reference in a student-developed report or project.

Another highlight of this collection is Project Author Study—a series of 7 organizers that could be used independently or collectively for an in-depth examination of an author and his/her works.

The balance of 50 More STUDYizers focuses on various aspects of studying and analyzing—all of which are presented immediately after the Quick Links.

Time Organizers

The cycle flow map shown immediately below would work well for science or history students.



These timelines are deliberately presented in a vertical format—this allows for more room for details about each event.



These final two organizers in this category are aimed squarely at the student who does not have a student planner and who may also need an organizational scheme for a major assignment.



Learning Maps

These first two maps in this category are extensions of the standard KWL and Think Pair Share that we are all familiar with. The latter is designed to be used before and WHILE the class is sharing.



This chapter study is a more detailed rendering of the classic SQ4R approach:



Although the design of the following Research Question Generator is mine, it is based on an excellent idea I found at Educational Oasis.



Project Internet

As I mentioned back in the introduction, the availability of graphic organizers that are related to the internet are hard to find (at least for me).

These first two are designed to be used one after the other:



This one is a less detailed version of the first two—all on one convenient page:



The final three organizers in this category focus on website/search engine comparisons. Two customizable maps are included for tailoring to your own specific needs.



Concepts and Characteristics

The essential difference between the following two organizers is the number of categories and associated examples (as noted in the parenthetical elements). The last one compares specific characteristics shared by three primary entities.



Vocabulary Charts

These charts work great with vocabulary as it is encountered as well as for review just prior to a quiz or a test.



Project Author Study

Return to Top of Page

As you may know, a slew of skills that teachers want students to utilize in the learning process can be met by implementing a study of authors.

Once students have found an author whose works appeal to them, that appeal can be leveraged into a rich learning opportunity.

The following series of 7 organizers could be used independently or collectively for an in-depth examination of an author and his/her works.

If you are interested, here is some more information on conducting an author study.



Decisions and Goals

Return to Top of Page

This final set of organizers concentrates on understanding controversies, solving dilemmas, making decisions, and setting and achieving goals. There’s also one that serves as a wake-up call for those students who may need one.



Customizable Graphic Organizers

Return to Top of Page

There are the 18 customizable graphic organizers available in this collection, and they appear in the following slide show.



What makes them “customizable” is that you may type in the headers, subheaders, and directions that best suit your needs.

This way, if you have a particular book title or a particular main topic that you want to appear in the organizer, you can go right ahead and type it in.

Each customizable organizer displays areas shaded in blue--these are the areas that you may type what you wish.

Additionally, when the mouse pointer passes over each of these shaded areas, a tool tip will pop up briefly, as you see in the yellow box here:

Conclusion

Although it has been extremely time-consuming to develop these organizers, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and the creative opportunity it afforded. I sincerely hope that they meet the needs of your students.

If I haven’t addressed a pressing need in the realm of graphic organizers for language arts, by all means, tell me what you need.

Originally I had planned only 3 titles for my “-izers” series, but the originals were so well received that I decided to develop additional ones.

Here, by the way, is the entire collection to date: As suggested above, there are more collections in the works. Please stop back again soon to see what’s available!

And, as I’m fond of saying (and sincerely mean), best wishes always to you and your kids!
