A routine for organizing one's understanding of a topic through concept mapping.
Description:This thinking routine helps students create a concept map that activates knowledge of a topic and connects those ideas together. The concept map will help to organize information in a specific way, i.e. most important to least important or chronological order.
How to Use the Strategy:
Refer to pages 125-131 in the book Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners.
