Free yourself from the limiting belief that you can’t draw and move into the world of visible thinking. With this book you will be able to build on what you already know about the skill of communicating in words and pictures, lead students through activities that promote thinking skills, and make your classroom a more lively and engaging place to learn.

Margulies and Valenza, two of the best-known visual facilitators in the business world, bring their expertise to the classroom and share their secrets for conveying complex ideas simply. If one picture is worth a thousand words, this book is worth millions. The authors have compiled a Symbolary of easy to draw iconographs that can be used to enrich communication, provoke deeper thought, and make the process of mind-mapping a breeze.

Ten years ago Mapping Inner Space (ISBN 1904424473) was published, bringing the concept of mapping and making Mindscapes to thousands of classrooms throughout the world. This book has even more ideas about using mapping and mindscaping in the classroom, more symbols, and more templates that students can use to help them think through challenging problems. If Mapping Inner Space got you fired up and asking for more, then this is the book for you.
