Thinking Maps

Thinking Maps is a visual language for 8 fundamental thinking processes used by students to explore content. Each map represents one of the thinking processes - Defining in Context, Describing, Comparing and Contrasting, Classifying, Sequencing, Cause and Effect, and Seeing Analogies. Unlike graphic organizers, Thinking Maps offer a consistent visual language that can be used in combination to increase rigor. These maps can be easily transferred across disciplines.
