  • Identify facts, terms, concepts and idea that you think are in any way associated with the topic. Make a list of these items – sometimes it is helpful to print these items on Post-It notes or note cards. For example, if you were asked to create a concept map to represent your knowledge of climate change, these topics and ideas might be on your list. [click through list] Can you add some more?

  • Group your concepts into groups and subgroups and create hierarchies. What is most important, and what is least important? Use a consistent organizational method so that the most important things are always at the top or at the center. Add additional terms and concepts as needed.

  • On a large table or sheet of paper, try to arrange your concepts in a manner that will best represent the interrelationships and connects among the concepts. Again, use a consistent hierarchy with the most important things at the top or in the center. This example shows the Main Concept at the top and topics arranged in decreasing importance toward the bottom Civil Engineering and Architecture Unit 1 – Lesson 1.2 – Careers in Civil Engineering and Architecture Project Lead The Way, Inc.

  • This is an example layout with the main concept in the center. The concepts toward the center of the map are more important than those on the outside.

  • Add lines with arrows to connect and show the relationship between connected concepts. Use linking words or phrases to specify each relationship.

  • Now finalize your concept map. Convert the concept map into a permanent form. Be creative and use attractive colors, fonts, shapes, borders, etc to communicate your understanding of the topic. Microsoft Word or PowerPoint can be used to create a concept map similar to this one. Review the concept map for crosslinks [click] to further describe relationships Civil Engineering and Architecture Unit 1 – Lesson 1.2 – Careers in Civil Engineering and Architecture Project Lead The Way, Inc.

  • To summarize, concept maps are graphic organizers that represent and organize knowledge. They include concepts related to a topic with links among the concepts. The links are represented by lines with arrowheads with which linking words are associated to describe the relationships among the concepts. Examples are often included to clarify concepts.
