Thinking Maps create a common visual representation of the individual thinking process. By implementing Thinking Maps teachers are able to create a common language for how students represent their understanding of content or concepts. There are 8 Thinking Maps to represent the 8 cognitive skills. These 8 maps are the only maps you will ever need to teach any concept! Once you begin to utilize student-created Thinking Maps in your classroom you see the effect that they will have on increased student achievement and rigor of assignments.
