How to Use Sequence Chart?
Reading comprehension is a required course for students around the world. For students at different ages and levels, the reading material varies. However, it's not always easy to conclude the plots of a story right after you finished reading. This is when a sequence chart helps a lot, especially for younger children who are easily attracted to vivid pictures and texts. Before reading a longer story with students, makes sequence charts labeled "beginning", "middle" and "end", or numbers like "1", "2", "3" etc. Stop for a while after each section of the content and have discussions on it will help students to summarize the main information.
In reading comprehension, sequence chart serves to conclude and simplify detailed information. In writing, creating a graphic organizer such as a sequence chart on events that students want to write about allow them to expand their story with detailed descriptions.
Science and Engineering
Along with trivial procedures, problems involving science and engineering always appear to be more complicated. For example, to solve a math problem, you need to apply different formulas to different steps in a fixed order. Even a minor mistake will ruin your efforts. In this case, a sequence chart labeled with the operating procedures offers them a clear mind and saves them much time.
In a lower-grade class, you may often hear students screaming and wrangling rules of a game or other activities. Young students are not old enough to understand and memorize a long statement on a certain thing. Listing the order and keywords in a sequence chart contributes to reducing their confusion, thus leaving the class in order.
