Time needed: 1 to 15 min
Why? Visualized content helps students draw a personal mind map.
When? How do things or systems work? Whenever there are interdependencies between more than one elements you can draw a graphic on the whiteboard.
How? Make sure you have drawn the graphic before in your lesson preparation. In class develop the graphic gradually on whiteboard. Don’t add too much text. You can ask students to copy the graphic after you have finished or ask them to draw it parallel to you.
Any risks? Make sure your graphic is biiiiig and easy to see. Trash or refill old whiteboard pens immediately.
