Transcript of Using mind maps to break up the research question

Your task is to:

To what extent is the IB Diploma Programme a coherent educational qualification?
To get you started we are giving you ideas on how you could break the main question into smaller questions or topics
1. Explain the break down of the question: To what extent is the IB Diploma Programme a coherent educational qualification?. Write this explanation on the top box next column.
2. write a basic interpretation under each heading.
3. For each heading identify potential subtopics, make smaller mind maps around them; and then write basic information under each new heading.
4. Use lines and arrows to create branches that connect the research question with subtopics and/or mini-questions. These should be different aspects of the answer to the Research Question.
5. Identify an order in which the essay will explore each heading. You can do this by arranging a path.
6. Explain why you ordered your topics in the way that you did.

a mind map is a tool to break down a question (or topic)
into smaller parts. this helps you organize your ideas and
make sure you don't miss key points in your answers.
We have designed a task for you to practice making a mind map. you need to make a copy of the Prezi, and post the link in your Researcher Reflection Space, under the heading 'Research notes'. Your task will be checked for completion, but not marked.
