Map Builder

TMLC isn’t just a place for talking about Thinking Maps–it’s also a place for making them, using the most advanced online tools available. Teachers can prepare Maps for their lessons. Students can use the web-based tool to create their own Maps as they enhance their writing skills. Everyone can learn, share and solve problems throughout the year and save all of their work in an electronic portfolio.

Map Gallery

It’s amazing what teachers are doing with Thinking Maps–and you can see for yourself right here. The Gallery is a professionally vetted ever-growing collection of the best Maps submitted by educators across the country–real-world examples of how Thinking Maps are being used for critical and creative thinking at every grade level and in every content area. You’ll want to check back often to gain inspiration for your own lessons.
