18 Must-Have Graphic Organizers for TASC, GED, and HiSET Teachers

Responsible TASC, GED, and HiSET teachers care about their students’ learning. How about you? 

Maybe you are tired of promoting surface knowledge. Tired of facilitating rote knowledge. Tired of  hiding behind multiple-choice questions. In other words, you feel the desire to lead— taking students to deep learning.

Now you are thinking, “ Where should I start?” 

Well, you should focus on the use of cognitive tasks. Cognitive tasks are open-ended and force learners to think deeper about content. And one of the ways to get this done is to use graphic organizers to encourage learners to explore content and show their understanding.

This leads us to 18 graphic organizers that you should have in your teaching repertoire.
