Graphic organizers are a great way to get your students thinking about a topic, organizing ideas and planning what they want to write before they actually start the writing task. Recently I wrote an article, 11 Strategies For Getting Your Students To Write, that lists some other really good ideas about how you can encourage your students to write.
This week I’ve found a tutorial video that will show you how you can set up your own graphic organizer template, using Google Draw, and then how you can share this with your students. The students are then able to take a copy of the graphic organizer and input their ideas electronically.
I thought this was a great way to integrate technology and have your students creating their own professional organizers. They are then able to electronically share these organizers or embed them on their own blogs.
I hope you enjoy the video!
