This section of my web/blog is for discussion and examples of the works of Barrie Bennett from our Discussion Group at Sullivan Heights Secondary. The premise behind this group is that every two to three weeks we meet after all of use one of the techniques from the book "Graphic Intelligence - Playing with Possibilities."  At the start of the weeks we discuss which graphic organizer we will use in our classes.  We will include it in a lesson plan, and then come back together to discuss and show samples of the organizer completed.  The positive and negative aspect of the experience will be discussed with the group:  what went well, what did not, how things went, etc.  We will be looking at and trying out the following graphic organizing methods:

  • timelines
  • flow charts
  • word webs
  • ranking ladders
  • venn diagrams
  • fish bone diagram
  • mind mapping and
  • concept mapping

The idea is to share info and share our experiences.  This web site is a continuation of this experience.  I hope it helps you.
