I love graphic organizers.  They can be a very powerful tool when used correctly.  A few things I've learned while using graphic organizers with students: 1) Don't assume they know how to use it  2) When introducing a new organizer, model it! 3) Be explicit and say how this particular organizers helps us as readers/writers, why we use it, and when we use it. 4) You don't always have to have a sheet printed out. For example, have students do a quick draw on their planning page before writing.

 The following blog post shares 10 uses for graphic organizers and also has a link to download some free ones!   Check it out and I hope it confirms your thinking or even gives you a new idea.  The Great and Powerful Graphic Organizer by Jennifer Gonzalez
