Mind Mapping Example 1 – Literary Criticism
A few years ago I was tasked with investigating how to apply Mind Mapping to the study of Literary Criticism. Now this is not a subject I was in the slightest bit interested in however I was keen to see how this would work. So I spent a whole morning studying about 50 pages devoted to the subject.
The first Mind Map you see above is my original hand drawn effort. The second example is the same map but tidied up by a professional artist because we were going to use this to help promote a training course to teachers.
Now the interesting thing about this exercise for me was that whilst I was not interested in the topic, by applying Mind Mapping to it I got to develop a deeper understanding of it and indeed an appreciation of Literary Criticism all because I was using a very powerul thinking strategy.
Had I just tried to read the document and taken a few hand written notes, I would have probably fallen asleep after the second page.
