Editorial Reviews

Review

"The work with Thinking Maps certainly reinforce one of the Habits of Mind―communicating with clarity and precision! I have used the first book with many study groups. Students of all ages and stages of development can profit from the clarity that these visual tools provide." (Bena Kallick, Co-Director 2010-09-10)

"This is one of the rare books that links research and practice and shows the true impact of a specific instructional approach on student learning. The research, experiences from the field, vignettes, and work samples provide the reader with more than sufficient resources to understand the value of thinking maps." (Giselle O. Martin-Kniep, President 2010-09-17)

Format: Hardcover
Student Successes With Thinking Maps(R): School-Based Research, Results, and Models for Achievement Using Visual Tools
by David Hyerle

According to my personal assessment, this book is the third in a trilogy of research-based books written by David Hyerle, an educational researcher & founder of Innovative Sciences in the 70's/80's.

The earlier two research-based books are:

- Visual Tools for Constructing Knowledge;
- Field Guide to Using Visual Tools;

The author is very smart to use these three research-based books as a self-promotional vehicle to market his core learning technology, embedded in what they call the 'Thinking Maps'.

In a nut shell, 'Thinking Maps' integrate thinking skills & mapping techniques. They are based on our fundamental thinking processes: We analyzes information in more or less eight different ways: define, describe, compare/contrast, classify, break down into parts, sequence,
cause/effect, establish relationships between things.

Application-wise, they comprise eight specific types of graphic organisers (the author prefers to use the term, visual tools) to help students & teachers in constructing knowledge, organising information, solving problems & communicating with others.

The eight tools are:

- Brace Map;
- Bridge Map;
- Bubble map;
- Circle map;
- Double Bubble Map;
- Flow Map;
- Multi-Flow Map;
- Tree Map;

Additionally, the core technology also includes a proprietary software, plus videos & other training manuals.

I can sense that their 'Thinking Maps' technology has been influenced somewhat by the Whimbey method, developed by Dr Arthur Whimbey.

First - buy directly from the publisher / author for about half the price. I am not sure why Amazon has it priced wrong.

This is the best book available to actually present research, sometimes soft and sometimes poorly documented (but the best out there on any type of mapping program), on what a set of eight visual primitives can do to improve student performance by using the primitives in Thinking Maps.

No book on the market can compare with the qualify of the material in this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who is wondering how student achievement can be improved across all grades and across all subjects.

This book is especially recommended for parents of home based / homeschool students. By using Thinking Maps students of all types can improve their performance in any area. I am using information in this book as I develop a course in "Creating Intelligence".

Of greatest interest to me is that this book shows how Thinking Maps has been successful with preschool children all the way through to a community college's nursing program.

This is not a "how to" book but a book on showing that the system works. To get the "how to" you have to look to other resources.

Good analysis of thinking maps. Provides an overview of the maps along with samples showing student completed maps.
A good resource for teachers wanting to gain more information on the maps and how they can be used in their classroom.
Sample maps are targeted more for upper elementary, middle, and high school students. Also recommended for reading, GT, special education, ESOL teachers and/or administrators.

I went to a workshop on thinking maps and when I returned to the classroom, I started introducing them to my students. They are able to organize their thoughts and information much more than in the past.
