Graphic Organisers and Thinking Tools

Our graphic organisers and thinking tools provide frameworks to assist students in scaffolding and observing their thinking and responses to texts.

They are designed to provide opportunities:

  • For deeper learning
  • To develop reading comprehension skills
  • To assist in becoming critical readers

With MORE TO COME, our series currently includes a Y-Chart, Character Profile, Story Map, Plot Summary, List Template, T-Chart, Venn Diagram, Menu Planner, Recipe Planner and an Interview Planner

Further ideas for using these resources can be found in each set of Classroom Ideas created for individual stories, or visit our blog post, 'Introducing our New Graphic Organisers and Thinking Tools' for some examples of how they can be used.
