A reading curriculum utilizing graphic organizers to help remedial readers better understand informational texts
This capstone is a curriculum designed to teach remedial readers in an alternative high school setting how to use graphic organizers to better understand informational texts. The curriculum focuses on compare and contrast, cause and effect, problem and solution, and computer generated graphic organizers using Inspiration. Each unit is designed to last three weeks, with the entire curriculum taking one trimester. During that time, students will use teacher-made and student-made graphic organizers to better understand informational texts and they will demonstrate their understanding in a series of essays on the material they have read, using the information in the graphic organizers.
