Different Types of Graphic Organizers and Their Uses 



Graphic organizers are visual displays of key content information designed to benefit learners who

hierarchical, conceptual, sequential, or cyclical (Bromley, Irwin-DeVitis, & Modlo, 1995).  Some

Maps are excellent for brainstorming, activating 

prior knowledge, or generating synonyms. 


Maps can be used to show hierarchical 

relationships with the most important concepts 

placed at the top.
