In traditional brainstorming, individuals or groups of people compile ideas on a topic, but do not evaluate or organize the ideas presented. In contrast, mind-mapping —also called concept mapping—visually places thoughts into categories.

Resources: Appendix C, Steps in the Writing Process, and Brainstorming Techniques Use either the circular or linear map template in Appendix C to organize your ideas for your expository essay topic.

Address the following questions:
o Are you able to narrow your topic to a single spoke or to a sub-header of a spoke on the map?
o Which sub-header did you settle on?
o How does mind-mapping prepare you for outlining?

Post Appendix C as an attachment and post your response to the questions.
