Présentation de l'éditeur

Mind Mapping for Kids helps elementary school students develop higher-level thinking and improve their reading comprehension using mind maps and 8 reading comprehension strategies.

KEY FEATURES

- Learn mind map basics in a few hours and start mind mapping in a day.
- Written by a mind mapper and features mind maps by other mind mappers.
- Includes over 50 mind maps created with over 10 different mind mapping programs.
- Full case study on reading comprehension using mind maps.

DESCRIPTION

We are all visual learners, at least in part. We absorb information visually more than in any other way. Yet, visual literacy is mostly missing from mainstream education. So, how can elementary school students visually represent information and ideas to improve their ability to build on what they already know, think critically, and learn meaningfully?

This question is the central theme of Mind Mapping for Kids. MMFK offers elementary school teachers a blueprint for how to introduce mind maps in their classrooms to help students think more rigorously and increase engagement by transforming linear, static information into connected, dynamic maps.

Part I of the book discusses the fundamentals of mind mapping for teachers, parents, and students. Part II demonstrates how to use mind maps and the eight reading comprehension strategies to help students develop critical thinking and better comprehend what they're reading. Part III provides 15 examples of mind mapping uses in school and at home and 5 templates to use in the classroom.

Give mind maps a try. They can be used independently or in conjunction with other literacy instruction programs. Either way, they will bring fun and excitement to the classroom while simultaneously improving thinking, reading, and learning.

FREE BONUS

To help you get started with mind maps, each book also comes with a free 1-year license of MindMeister or ConceptDraw. To get your free download code, e-mail the author with your proof of book purchase and program preference.

Toni Krasnic is an established expert in coaching and student development who is well-known in mind mapping circles as a superstar. Mr. Krasnic has written an accessible, concise, and research-based book on using mind maps and other visual learning tools with beginning students. In my opinion, the methods Mr. Krasnic introduces will be an increasing part of elementary school education in the next few decades. Usually in mind mapping books, the method of mind mapping in one computer program or another is the primary focus of the book. Mr. Krasnic places the emphasis where it should be: on using mind mapping tools to SUPPORT EFFECTIVE LEARNING STRATEGIES. This is a book about learning and teaching and coaching and classroom exercises using visual learning methods. Mr. Krasnic does not tie the book to any commercial product but rather pairs the book content to learning theory, issues, and techniques. Many of the major mind mapping commercial products are introduced and there are many exceptional examples of mind maps that address real learning issues and support skill acquisition. This books is not about a flashy new computer program that makes pretty pictures. The book is about using powerful visual learning methods starting in elementary school and continuing through life to achieve mastery in many learning situations.

As a retired teacher, who spent 36 years in the classroom, I was familiar with the concept of mind mapping that Toni Krasnic shares in Mind Mapping For Kids: How Elementary School Students Can Use Mind Maps To Improve Reading Comprehension and Thinking. However, I must say that I never had a resource that is this beneficial and forthright in providing the steps either a teacher or parent should take in guiding children on the path to learn how these mind maps can benefit their learning. Connecting mind maps to reading comprehension makes so much sense. Using the strategies of comprehension along with the mind maps provides such a powerful tool for children to use as they progress to higher and higher levels of thinking. The mind maps can just grow right along with them.

The fact that this is an ebook with links within it, is another tremendous addition to the success of learning via mind maps, in that there are many opportunities to check out other sources to back up the learning within Mind Mapping For Kids. Author Toni Krasnic also introduces the fact that there are many computer tools/programs that are available for mind mapping. Parents/Teachers can choose from any of them to incorporate into and enhance lessons, but the great thing is...a piece of paper and some colored pencils can work just as well (in my humble opinion).

As a former teacher, and parent of five, I highly recommend this resource. I will be using this tool for students in my tutoring sessions. Whenever we can paint a "verbal picture," our learning curve goes way up. Thank you, Toni Krasnic, for providing this affordable resource for parents and teachers. It is a tool that can be used across grade levels and across curriculum subjects.

Concept maps and mind maps are important visual learning tools that help students take ownership of their learning as they build understanding. Whether you are new to visual learning or a lifelong "mapper", you will find a plethora of ideas and resources in Toni's clear, concise book that balances theory and research with practical explanations and examples. Through text, images and, of course, maps, he demonstrates how maps support higher order thinking skills and collaboration. Toni also provides examples of mind maps to show you possibilities, sharing a variety of map styles, software programs, and applications to use. Read this book to start creating your own maps, or better yet...with your students or child.

I know that a mind map is a great tool, but I have never really invested the time to learn how to use it properly. Since this book is meant for kids, I thought that the author would do a very good job of explaining how to use mind maps and he did.

Mind Mapping for Kids is meant to assist students to improve reading comprehension and critical thinking. The intent is to help students become better readers and learners. Since learning is a lifelong process, the intent is suited for adults as well.

In addition to discussing what mind maps are, and how to use them, Krasnic does the same for concept maps and explains the differences between the two visual maps. But much of his focus is on mind maps since that is the primary focus of Mind Mapping for Kids.

I was very happy to see that the author included a mind map of how professionals can use mind maps.

To relate the mind map to life, Krasnic does an excellent job of attaching questions to each reading strategy to improve comprehension. For instance, when connecting what you’re reading to what you already know, two simple questions are “What do I already know about this topic?” and “What does this information remind me of?” The mere action of asking yourself questions, forces you to think about and process the information. In addition, the questions are intelligent ones that are worthy of answering.

This is a great book for teachers’ teaching toolkit and a great resource for adults looking to become better learners and more productive.
