Last week I participated in an online webinar, and it still has me pondering and creating ways to incorporate more visual support into the classroom. Laura Candler‘s “Using Graphic Organizers to Create Reading Mini Lessons” webinar was full of useful info and strategies for incorporating graphic organizers into reading lessons based on the Common Core Standards. Her ideas are based on years of teaching experience in the classroom, and her presentation is supplemented by visuals and activities from her book Graphic Organizers for Reading. She even offers some free resources to get you started, so be alert if you add this webinar to your professional development! 🙂
