The Information Architect uses the power of graphic organizers to understand the text.
Research has shown that graphic organizers can be helpful in improving comprehension.
This is because they give you a framework for understanding information so that you can connect it to other information you already know.
The Text-structure Scout in the Advance Team provides graphic organizers for understanding the text in preparation for reading. The graphic organizers with the Information Architect can either expand on these while you read, or allow you to focus on specific concepts that might be assigned or of interest.
Design and Organize Key Concepts with a Diagram or Sketch
- What is the model that is being described? How does it relate to the text structure? How do the Key Terms relate to each other?
- Can I make or use a Graphic Organizer? How does the graphic organizer compare to my pre-reading analysis of text structure?
- Use pre-made graphic organizers or sketch your own for a customized experience.
