Visual thinking can be expressed in many ways. Graphic organizers are one way for visual thinkers to arrange their ideas. These tools can be very helpful because they allow students to practice editing and organizing their ideas before writing a thematic essay. Graphic organizers encourage students to concentrate on key terms and focus on the connections between these terms. Organizers are also a worthy tool to review concepts and allow students to demonstrate their understanding. Students can easily make changes and examine multiple perspectives. In essence these organizers will help students to achieve clarity of thinking. Lastly, these organizers benefit students by helping them to develop the big picture of a topic and develop these ideas into a thesis statement. This CAP aims to create graphic organizers for the 9th grade curriculum and provide corresponding thematic essay topics.
