(introduction cont.) Tools for Introducing the Lesson Graphic Organizers – visual displays that allow students to view and construct relationships among words. Types of graphic organizers: In group discussion have students brainstorm and use these graphic organizers as visual aides. Pictorial maps - provides pictures along with words Webs - simplified semantic map which displays concrete information Venn Diagram – compares two or three concepts/subjects

Pictorial Maps helps students to have an image to pair with a new word. :
