Semantic Mapping

Semantic maps (or graphic organizers) are maps that can visually display a word or phrase and a set of related words or concepts. Learning to create these maps addresses the Common Core State Standards related to knowledge of language and vocabulary acquisition and use. Most importantly, the maps will help your students recall the meaning of words they read the text. As you differentiate instruction, provide options for each map you share with students. Offering choices and multiple representations aligns with UDL principles.
