Employee Cafeteria: Using the Graphic Organizer
Some of the Lure of the Labyrinth’s puzzles require that players simultaneously juggle quite a bit of information in order to solve them. Some learners will take this in stride, figuring it all out in their heads. Others may need the kind of enhanced scratch paper that a graphic organizer is.
The Lure of the Labyrinth Employee Cafeteria graphic organizer mirrors the screen learners will see as they play each puzzle. They are a “go-with,” not an “instead of.” They give learners who are so inclined a place to think things through before they commit to entering data on the puzzle. They can also provide a handy place for working through other calculations that are part of the puzzle.
Graphic organizers can also help you observe the processes learners went through as they worked with the puzzle. This could be helpful in analyzing their errors to see where else you can help them in future lessons.
