I use mind maps for every piece of literature I teach. It is a graphic organizer that gives kids choice and allows them to bring their personal creativity and style into their assignments. Mind maps aid students in analyzing literature and also prepares them to write a thorough literary analysis essay. It focuses on citing evidence and analyzing text for five main areas: characters, settings, conflicts, other elements of fiction (foreshadowing, irony, etc.), and topics (which turn into themes). My students love doing these and they can be used as individual or group assignments, turned into presentations or essays, and, once they are taught, can be meaningful sub plans!
