Graphic Organisers Pack

  • This pack of 36 graphic organisers offers students a range of planning templates to demonstrate higher order thinking skills, or cognitive verbs, in their writing.

    Each graphic organiser features space for students to plan their writing, as well as prompt questions and sentence starters. Templates are designed to be printed out and given to students, so they can write their plan directly into the graphic organiser. Students can then use the sentence starters to help them draft their plan into sentences and paragraphs.

    The graphic organisers complement Pat's Posters and help teachers explicitly teach the cognitive verbs used in the new Queensland senior syllabus.
