HYIS Non-Linguistic
Spring 2009 Part III
Statesville Middle School
April 22, 2009
“Give students a thought and
they’ll learn for a day. TEACH
them to think and they will learn
for a lifetime.”
Graphic Organizers
Combine linguistic
(words/phrases) and nonlinguistic
(symbols/arrows) to represent
relationships
Why??

Students creating and utilizing graphic organizes causes
them to elaborate on knowledge



Students then understand the content to a greater
depth
Graphic Organizers also assist with recall of
information.
The power lies in students owning the strategy…
which graphic organizer fits which type of information
Six Common Patterns of Information
Organization from Marzano’s Research
Most information can be organized with one
of the six common patterns:



Descriptive
Time-sequence
Process/cause-effect
Episode
Generalization/principle patterns
Concept patterns
Thinking Maps
Many schools in our district have been
trained to teach and utilize “Thinking
Maps.”
These “Thinking Maps” come from the
research that identified the most
predominant thinking skills utilized by and
required of students as they learn.

Thinking Map to see which ones, as a staff, we needed
to review
The results are:

There are many other types of generic
visual/graphic organizers that you might
use but….
The power of the “Thinking Maps” is
having a tool box for students where they
understand what they are and how to use
them. Hardwiring their brains….
