School has been in session for about a month. How are you/your students/your children doing with their assignments? If they are anything like me when I was a kid, writing assignments are put aside until the last possible moment. As a student, writing about books you’re told to read for class is not fun nor easy. However, students of today have what I did not when I was a student: mind mapping software.
I did a quick analyses on “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald using MindMaple, just to see how long it would take. I analyzed the characters, their roles, their relationship with each other, and the themes of the story. Essentially, I would be using the half hour or so I would be using trying to organize my notes on creating a mind map. Of course, if you want your mind map to look as intriguing as the story is, you need more time. On the plus side, if the assignment was to summarize “The Great Gatsby”, I already have it done and looking pretty.
Have a look and let me know what grade you think I would get if I had submitted this mind map as my homework. You can download the mind map template here. If you haven’t downloaded MindMaple for your computer or device yet, visit our website for free and premium mind mapping software.
