Get your class thinking with a graphic organizer made for brainstorming. Pupils note down a topic in the middle and then branch out to write down more ideas in each of the three circles that form the cluster around the topic.

Instructional Ideas

  • Have learners brainstorm for writing an essay with three body paragraphs using this organizer; each large circle can be a topic, and the three smaller circles inside each larger circle can be for evidence
  • Invite pupils to use the white space around the cluster map to draw pictures or make additional notes on their topics
Pros

  • Since the graphic organizer is generic, you can use it for just about any purpose that you can think of that fits the shape of the organizer
Cons

  • There isn't much space for students to write directly inside of the circles provided
