Graphic Organizers to Provide Access For Different Literature Genres For All Upper Elementary Students

How can general education teachers maximize supports for all students so they can access and successfully interact with grade-level literature? This project focused upon developing a visual tool to improve reading comprehension for students, particularly students who are visual-spatial learners such as students with autism. The products of this project are three different graphic organizers specially designed to facilitate comprehension of fiction and non-fiction chapter books for visual-spatial learners such as students with autism. Graphic organizers were designed for the two broad categories for literary genres - fiction, and non-fiction. The graphic organizers were designed for use by general education teachers to better include and instruct students with autism and visual-spatial learning preferences in general education upper grades literature instruction. The literature selected to model the use of graphic organizers were popular children’s literature chapter books.
