Lesson Organizer Database Now Available

Check out the SIPDC website which now houses a lesson organizer database filled with rich examples created over the years by educators participating in the Institute to Credential Special Learning Needs Resource Specialists.

Lesson organizers are a type of graphic organizer that has been designed and research has proven to be successful with and for students. A lesson organizer, also known as an advance organizer, provides a visual depiction of the information as it’s explained. Although it may appear to be a lesson plan, it is actually meant to be used for the student to enhance understanding and facilitate independence. A lesson organizer is part of numerous instructional strategies taught in the Institute to Credential Special Learning Needs Resource Specialists.

For more information on the Institute, or if you have questions about lesson organizers, email Sarah Goldammer at sgoldam@siue.edu. If you have additional examples of lesson organizers you are willing to share, please send them to Sarah.

For online training on advance lesson organizers, a one-hour webinar created by Neil Sturomski is available through the Illinois Community College Board iLEARN site. Email sipdctrainer@gmail.com for access to this and other online training.
