7 ideas on a single topic

Create mind map assignments following the steps from this section. Learn how to introduce group work to students and then use the following exercises to teach them how to learn collaboratively. You can also create other exercises that you think would fit well with the lessons you teach in class.


Ask every team to create a mind map and come up with 7 ideas to a specific problem. - Every idea needs to have at least 3 supportive arguments. - Topic examples: global warming, world hunger etc.

Optionally, you can create a mind map with a few guidelines like the example below that will help your students develop their own mind maps thinking how to prevent global warming and attach the map to the assignment.

Reward the mind map which has the best ideas and arguments and discuss the results with your class.
