Intern’s Corner: Concept Mapping

Former intern for Online Writing Lab Blog.

Concept mapping is a great way to visualize what you have learned and connect the concepts and ideas for a better understanding. It can be used while you are reading a book or listening to a lecture. It starts with a central box (main point or idea) and then branches out to supporting details. Check out this infographic for a visual of how to create a concept map.
