Name of Strategy
Combinations: Graphic Organizers
In my nurse aide class, we discussed the use of graphic organizers as a strategy for both before and after reading. Using a section from the text, I modeled an organizer and then had students do one on their own.

Very Useful and Effective
Students thought it was good to organize information this way. The next assigned activity though, they went back to straight note-taking. (I suppose they go with what’s familiar.) I will use graphic organizers again. I even showed the students how I use graphic organizers for my own notes in graduate school. I think they will try it more as I model the techniques.
The educator applied this strategy to the following subject areas:
Family/Consumer Science
