  16. 41. Historical Context <ul><ul><li>Advance organizers came about in the 1960s with Ausubel and the Discovery learning movement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Graphic organizers came onto educational scene during the 1980s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hyerle decided to take it one step further and create the same “tools” for specific cognitive skills in the mid-1990s </li></ul></ul>
  17. 42. Philosophical Perspectives <ul><ul><li>Students need to be taught how to organize thinking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students and teachers need to speak a common visual language </li></ul></ul>
  18. 43. Research Base <ul><ul><li>No published peer-reviewed studies to date </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>All are master’s theses or doctoral dissertations OR articles and books written by Hyerle, himself </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When a doctoral student approached Hyerle to conduct a study, he presented two reservations … </li></ul></ul>
  19. 44. Hyerle’s Reasons to Limit Research <ul><li>If the prescribed program procedures are not consistently followed, it might skew the results of the study. </li></ul><ul><li>Seven months is not an adequate amount of time to conduct a study. It can take years to see effects from the use of Thinking Maps. </li></ul>
  20. 45. Effectiveness of Method and Rationale <ul><ul><li>Peer-reviewed research is needed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What specifically makes the expensive Thinking Maps more effective than inexpensive graphic organizers? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is it just another “next best thing?” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ineffective when every teacher is not trained properly or provided with proper training materials </li></ul></ul>
