Module Goals:

In addition to suggesting an effective formal outline approach to reading textbook material, this module will present an overview of graphic organizers that can be adapted to meet a variety of reading assignments and learning tasks across all disciplines. Because they are simple to construct, you can also encourage students to create their own format for these maps.

Our learning goals for this module are:

  • Faculty will gain an awareness of how outlining and using graphic organizers to interpret and take notes increases comprehension while reading.
  • Faculty will learn application strategies for teaching outlining and mapping to students.
