Thinking Maps Interactive Notebooks: Left Sides
 *The left side of the notes. demonstrates your understanding of the information
from the right side of traditional notes.
 *You work with the input, and INTERACT with the information in creative, unique, and individual ways.
 *The left side incorporates and reflects how you learn Social Studies as well as what you learn in Social Studies.
 What goes on the left side?
  Left side
There are 8 types of thinking maps and each one serves a different purpose. Thinking Maps Thinking maps enable students to improve their writing as well as develop life long skills that will help them study. Thinking Maps Another example (*use color on left side) Right Side
Student Example(s) of Right Side of Notebook
small group or large group discussion
collaborative group process
a copied excerpt of a text   Right Side of the Notebook Map out your daily routine. Flow Maps sequence and order a process. They identify the relationships between stages and sub stages of an event (or order or numbers, operations, steps, etc.) They can be used to explain the order of events. In the outside rectangle, write the name for the event or sequence. Rectangles to follow list the steps or events that follow from beginning to end. Smaller rectangles may be written below to list sub stages or each major stage. Flow Map Map out the parts of a continent, country or state. Brace maps are used to analyze the structure of an item. It's like 'dissecting' on paper. On the line to the left, write the name of the whole object. On the lines within the first brace to the right, write the major parts of the object, then follow within the next set of braces with the subparts of each major part. Brace Map Create a shopping list for the grocery store organized by type of food (i.e. produce, dairy, canned goods). Tree maps are used for classifying and grouping. Things or ideas are sorted into categories or groups. Sometimes new categories are created. On the top line, write the category name. Below that begin writing sub-categories. Below each sub-category write specific members of the group. Some things can go in multiple groups. Tree Map Compare and contrast you and your best friend. This is similar in concept to a Venn Diagram. Two items being compared are written in the two center circles. Outside bubbles show items that share qualities with only one object - these are contrasting qualities. Center bubbles (that connect to both circles) show similarities between the two items being compared. Double Bubble Map Bubble Maps are used to describe qualities using adjectives ("sparkle words") and adjective phrases. In the center circle, write the word or thing being described. Write the adjectives or adjective phrases in the outside circles. Describe yourself. Bubble Map Write a reflection on the information or experience
Find a quote that connects to the concept; record it and explain your rationale
Make connections between the information/text and your own life, another text, and/or the world
Create a mind map that captures the main topic and key concepts and supportive detail
Create an acronym that will help you to remember the information covered
Make connections to the content/processes of other courses Paraphrase or clarify items
Enter a drawing, photo, sketch, or magazine picture that illustrates the concept, ideas, or facts
Pose questions about the information
Form and express an opinion
Predict outcomes or next steps
Create a metaphor that captures the essence of the information/issue
Formulate and record a contradictory perspective Left Side of the Notebook Compare 2 things and determine what is the relating factor. Bridge maps helps identify similarities between relationships. On the far left, write in the relating factor. The relating factor is the similar phrase that fits both sides of an analogy. On the top and bottom of the left side of the bridge, write in the first pair of things that have this relationship. On the right side of the bridge, write in the second pair of things that have the same relationship. The bridge can continue with more relating factors. Bridge Map Map out a time you got in trouble for something or with someone. What caused it and what happened as a result? Cause and effect is represented in a Multi-Flow Map. It is a process of sequencing that looks at what caused an event and the results/effects of the event. In the center rectangle, list the event that occurred. In the rectangle to the left, list the causes of the event. Write the effects/consequences of the event in the rectangles to the right of the center rectangle. Multi-Flow Map Complete this Circle Map on your own. Circle Maps are used to help define a thing or idea. It is used to brainstorm ideas and for showing prior knowledge about a topic. In the center of the circle, use words, numbers, pictures, or any other sign or symbol to represent the object, person, or idea you are trying to understand or define. In the outside circle, write or draw any information that puts this thing in context. Circle Map Now let's determine if we can...

correctly apply and construct all 8 maps
identify appropriate thinking map in response to prompt or question
apply multiple maps to analyze and comprehend information for learning
