Mind-Mapping for the Visual Learner

As homeschooling parents one of the most frustrating lessons can be found in teaching your child how to write a paper. I’ve heard numerous accounts that can attest to the fact that it can be a long process. Will they be able to write clearly enough to tackle the SAT’s? What about when they get to college? For some kids a bulleted outline works well. They can look at a book and transcribe the main points to make a clearly written outline with all main points covered.
What about the visual learner? The visual learner has difficulty recalling information from their text and this can be very frustrating. This I can attest to because I belong to that club! Up until earlier this year I had not discovered mind-mapping. What is mind-mapping? Glad you asked!
