A New Look at Mnemonics and Graphic Organizers in the Secondary Social Studies Classroom


The graphic organizers and mnemonics strategies presented here will assist teachers in differentiating instruction based on the social studies content being learned by students and the text structure used to convey that content, as well as students’ specific learning needs. The versatility of the strategies allows students to use these tools in combination and across settings.
