BUS/212 Mind Map Script
For your assignment, you will create a Mind Map. It is important that you use a tool such as
Popplet®, Mindmeister®, or Microsoft® Word. If you choose a Microsoft® Word document, be
mindful of the Mind map requirement; with this format, you would still create text boxes within
a diagram, and not write a paper.
Now that you have selected the tool you will use, you can create your Mind Map. Think of a
Mind Map as a relationship builder among similar concepts. Think about how you would
organize your thoughts on the topics you will address. You might have a major subject, such as
mediation. Then, you might choose several topics that relate to mediation, such as advantages
of mediation and disadvantages of mediation, as well as mediator qualifications. Then, in your
third layer, you might discuss those advantages, disadvantages and qualifications.
As another example, let’s say you were creating a Mind Map about weather in the United
States. Your first and central topic might be United States weather. Your second layer might
include Colorado and California and the weather patterns in those states. Your third layer might
be cities and the weather patterns there.
There are many ways to organize this project. Some students use a single page for their Mind
Map, while others choose multiple pages. You might consider putting your major topic in the
center, with lines leading to secondary topics. Then, from those secondary topics, you would
add your third layer of details.
Many students are learning how to use a Mind Map for the first time in this course, but if you
have experience with this tool, then you should do well.
