Conclusion Webs for Preparing to Write The following graphic organizers are designed to focus kids' attention on what to write and how to present it.
Character Webs The following webs focus on the literary techniques of characterization.
Although the screenshots you will see here have been reduced in size and somewhat in clarity, I think you'll be able to see the main headers, subheaders, and overall design fairly well.
Responding to Literature Forms All of the forms in this section are designed to elicit subjective responses from student readers. Additionally, a couple of them require students to do some record-keeping.
Reading Analysis Organizers These organizers require readers to make connections with the text.
The focus here is on predicting outcomes, observing literary devices, summarizing, determining cause-and-effect relationships, understanding themes, and comparing and contrasting stories.
Story Maps These story maps pictorially illustrate the elements of fiction and the sequence of plot. They all focus on setting, characters, conflict, complication, and resolution. Cognitive Bookmarks These bookmarks encourage kids to think about and write about what they are reading as they read.
There are 3 to 4 bookmarks per sheet designed specifically for realistic fiction, historical fiction, science-fiction, fantasy, and mystery.
The last two work very well for readers of nonfiction. Here are those cognitive bookmarks: Here's a closer look at four of those bookmarks from the slideshow above: Instructional Webs Although limited in number, these webs offer specific definitions and instruction designed to teach various aspects of reading.
If these are fairly well received, I would be happy to design more of these in the near future.
Let me know what you think. Customizable Graphic Organizers These organizers are customizable--you may type in the headers, subheaders, directions, and instructional material that best suit your needs. I've included these because sometimes predesigned forms are not entirely appropriate for the task at hand.
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: Here are the other 17 customizable graphic organizers.
The original completed organizer appears on the left side of each slide, and its customizable version appears on the right. Once again, if these are fairly well received, I would be happy to design more of them in the near future.
Just let me know what you think.Communicate the learning objectives to students and parents.
