Concept Map Guide

  • Select a drawing medium, i.e. pen and paper or online software for the task.
  • Create the main concept. Find the central idea that connects to all other ideas on your map.

  • Identify key concepts and list them on the page as briefly as possible.

  • Organize shapes and lines, in a hierarchical format, most general ideas at the top, most specific ones at the bottom.

  • Fine-tune the map. Ask yourself:  Does every element fit well in its place or is there a better position for this idea?

The Mind Map

It's an interdisciplinary strategy where a student or group build(s) of a single concept or idea: a drama, an element in chemistry, a biography, a vocabulary word, an event in history, a commercial product.

The concept or idea is placed in the center of a blank sheet of paper and representations of other ideas are connected to that central concept are added, branching out in all directions on the page.
