Writing and the Visual: Graphically Organizing Your Writing

Student Success Week 2015 | Exploring the Intersection of Writing with Technology

What if students could see how their writing is organized using graphics? In this session, Thomas DeVere Wolsey will discuss cutting-edge research on how visual organizers enhance writing and writing instruction. When students can see what their writing might look like, graphically organized, they are more likely to write well, to be motivated to compose their thoughts, and to discover new approaches to writing.

Join us for this session with Dr. Wolsey who will demonstrate (with examples) how to use technology to create incredible, flexible graphic organizers that foster creative thinking.
