Here's a model of the 3-2-1 Nonfiction Reading Strategy Graphic Organizer. It was 1st modeled by the T on how to complete it, then the kids completed one at a station. Being able to read informational texts effectively is a fundamental quality of successful readers. After reading nonfiction books or articles, this graphic organizer helps st. summarize what they have learned.
