Graphic organizers; Grading and marking (Students)--United States; Academic achievement; Special education


The purpose of the study was to see whether the use of graphic organizers as a tool would lead to academic achievement. Graphic organizers could be a way for the students to comprehend the information being presented to them. This research may provide teachers with information about a strategy or technique that could be utilized when working with students in special education programs. Graphic organizers may help those students who are visual learners. Many students need to see information in a visual format to make the concepts being taught more concrete and to enable students to make connections to text. This research could offer educators another option when introducing information to students.
