Semantic Map: Vertical Radiating Circle
Semantic maps are very popular graphic organizers in classrooms. They are terrific for brainstorming ideas. Older students find them incredibly useful for answering essay questions. In the center is the topic, such as "World War II." Each branch is labeled with a subtopic, such as "Holocaust." Students can add more branches as they come up with more ideas.
