Concept mapping provides a framework for organizing conceptual information in the process of defining a word. The concept map also supports vocabulary and concept learning by helping students internalize a strategy for defining and clarifying the meaning of unknown words. Students write the concept word or target word being studied in the center, and then work outward into the boxes writing words that describe the target word. The framework of the concept map contains: category/class the concept or target word belongs, properties of the concept word or target, and examples of the concept or target word.
