Improves content learning as it develops critical thinking and effective learning strategies.

Organizing Thinking lessons integrate content instruction, critical thinking, and graphic organizers to help students:
  • Simplify, understand, and remember information
  • Develop deeper learning connections
  • Organize and manage their own thinking and learning
Each lesson clearly identifies the content objective and thinking process being taught. Students are provided with content material and a blank organizer for depicting relevant information. Lesson plans include techniques for using graphic organizers; discussion activities that explain, model, or extend lessons; and a summary of inferences, interpretations, or conclusions which result from discussion.
