How to use graphic organizers for teaching writing, learning, and understanding across the curriculum. Graphic organizers guide learners’ thinking as they fill in and build upon a visual map or diagram. Graphic organizers are some of the most effective visual learning strategies for students and are applied across the curriculum to enhance learning and understanding of subject matter content. In a variety of formats dependent upon the task, graphic organizers facilitate students’ learning by helping them identify areas of focus within a broad topic, such as a novel or article.

The Daily Graph - AppTrac "The Daily Graph" re-creates charts from The Economist's Graphic Detail blog using standard run-of-the-mill Excel techniques without macros. We do try to milk Excel for all it's worth and apply techniques that may not have been intended in the way we use them. In the end, it's the result that counts. "The Daily Graph" is published whenever we spot an interesting chart on The Economists's blog that looks like it cannot be done in Excel. Typically once or twice a week if we can find the time.The Daily Graph blog comes with a dowloadable version of an Excel workbook so that you can follow what we did... or you can "borrow" our work and use it for something entirely different.
Catalog The Socrata Open Data API (SODA) allows software developers to access data hosted in Socrata data sites programmatically. Developers can create applications that use the SODA APIs to visualize and “mash-up” Socrata datasets in new and exciting ways. Create an iPhone application that visualizes government spending in your area, a web application that allows citizens to look up potential government benefits they'd overlooked, or a service that automatically emails you when new earmarks are added to bills that you wish to track. To start accessing this dataset programmatically, use the API endpoint provided below. For more information and examples on how to use the Socrata Open Data API, reference our Developer Documentation. API Access Endpoint:
