This study evaluated the effectiveness of the use of a graphic organizer notebook in a French II classroom of a suburban high school in Oklahoma City. Students from 2 different classes were given either a partially completed or an empty graphic organizer notebook to help them review important concepts learned in French I. Students' learning was evaluated through the administration of a test before and after review. As expected, student test scores after review improved greatly compared to their pre-test scores. Although the type of notebook used did not significantly impact test scores , qualitative data showed that all students benefited from the use of graphic organizers.
