Concept Mapping

Concept mapping is a useful visual representation of the related concepts, ideas,  and even questions that stem from a general, broad topic.  Making a concept map is simple and there is no right or wrong way to do it. 

Below is a simple concept map on race. The center of the map contains the main idea, in this case Race, and the branches are possible areas to explore.Concept maps can be very detailed or fairly simple, but their main purpose is to organize thoughts in order to produce a question. For example, a possible question to ask from the map below would be "How does a teacher's race impact student success?"
