    T-Charts are a type of chart, a graphic organizer in which a student lists and examines two facets of a topic, like the pros and cons associated with it, its advantages and disadvantages, facts vs. opinions, etc.

    For example, a student can use a T-chart to help graphically organize thoughts about:

    ; Making a decision by comparing resulting advantages and disadvantages (like getting a

    pet or taking a new job),

    ; Evaluating the pros and cons of a topic (for example, adopting a new invention),

    ; Enumerating the problems and solutions associated with an action (for example,

    analyzing the plot of a book or a topic like poor nutrition),

    ; Listing facts vs. opinions of a theme (great to use after reading a selection of text or a

    news article),

    ; Explaining the strengths and weaknesses of a piece of writing (useful after reading a

    piece of persuasive or expository writing),

    ; Listing any two characteristics of a topic (like the main ideas for a given topic and a

    salient detail for each idea).
