Get Creative! Semantic Mapping is...

With my students, I can't stress enough the importance of pre-planning their writing by "mapping." The "simplest" semantic map is a descriptive web - a circle in the middle, categories coming off of it, and organized with details.

These charts, also called "mind maps" benefit people of all ages, including people in corporate think-tanks. It helps you organize your thoughts, whether you are writing a paragraph or a book.

Today I want to share this link with you on the "Top 10" mind maps. Please check this out to see how creative this process can really get: Top 10 Mind Maps from the blog Mind Map Inspiration by Paul Foreman.
