GC404 – Graphic Organizers – Concept Map Lesson Review
GC404-S3 – Concept Map Lesson Review – Using paper, a poster or a cardboard tri-fold display board, Alexa or Instructor will guide students, individually, with a partner or small group to create a Concept Map Review tool, beginning with the lesson topic or question in a center circle. Next, students will draw major links from their map’s center, ending each link by connecting major sub-topics. Then, any related key points will be added. Last, students will insert appropriate linking words for each sub-topic and details on the map to create full sentences.

GC403 – Graphic Organizers – Sequenced Pathway Review
GC403-S3 – Sequenced Pathway – Sequenced Pathways consist of steps, series, phases or cycles. Following the lesson, Alexa or Instructor will guide students, either individually or as small groups, to pinpoint any concept/topic within the lesson that has a sequenced or chronological pathway. Next, students will select and create their own graphic, depicting the sequential progression identified in the lesson. Examples of various sample formats of sequential graphics, such as a timeline, chronological flowchart, cycle flowchart and a hierarchical concept map are provided in this assignment. The graphic selected can be completed and made into a study tool or poster for the classroom wall.
