Though the ability to think is one of the numerous roles of the human brain (Parry and Gregory, 1998), many learner readers in Nigeria lack the required skills for creative and critical thinking necessary for interpretation during and after reading sessions. This may not be unconnected with the teacher-centred commit-to-memory-based pedagogy used by teachers. This study, therefore, foregrounds graphic organisers for the promotion of cognition and metacognitive skills in the context of teaching reading and literature in Nigeria. It concludes that embedding such interactive learning in the nation’s reading and literature curriculum will enhance visuo-spatial reasoning among learners in the country.
