General Graphic Organizers Worksheets
Learning organization techniques should not be a chore, but rather a process that everyone should grasp, understand, and implement into their lives. For example, if you're someone who is unorganized when it comes to bills, more than likely you have a hard time getting them paid by the due date. Another example might be with school work. If you're a student and you don't have an organization structure in place for taking and storing notes, then chances are you don't do very well with taking tests.
Organization is truly a skill. As a teacher, organization is a critical factor to how your day will go. You should put a few hours of into thinking about how you can better organize yourself from the moment the alarm goes off until your head hits the pillow.
Being well organized will help students and teachers both be productive in and out of the classroom. You will eliminate stress, and save time by demonstrating organizational skills. Efficiency will take on a whole new meaning, and you will notice that you're more calm because your life won't seem so out of control.
Once you have yourself day organized it is time to look at how to better organize and focus your students. A great way to do this is first to look at your class from their eyes. What obstacles and challenges must they over come? What can you share with them that would make those obstacles not as tall of an order? You can help them learn to study.
Now look at your individual lessons. What can you do to make large amounts of information digestible? Easy, graphic organizers! You might have heard the old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words!” It surely is true. Helping students learn the ins and outs of graphic organizers are key. You should always assume that they have no idea what the organizer tells them. Take a minute to explain what you see and they should see too.
