Using Flowcharts to Increase Comprehension

Okay, you have just taught an award winning lesson.  It was hands-on, engaging, included the Common Core Standards, and was differentiated.  In fact, you want to pat yourself on the back for a job well done. But wait a moment. All the students seem to understand except for Carla and Nate.  Flowcharts are a great way to help students remember step-by-step what to do.  If a student has difficulty remembering steps for math, what to pay attention to when they are analyzing characters, or even reading strategies, I usually work with the student one-on-one and introduce flowcharts.

  1. I love flow charts & graphic organizers. They help the kids see patterns and organize the information in order.

    Happy Holidays!
