How to do a mind map - step 1

Brainstorm

A brainstorm is a thinking process commonly used in study and work situations. It can be done individually or in a group.

How to brainstorm

  • Use a piece of paper to write down everything you can think of about a particular topic.
  • Write the name of the topic in the centre of the page.
  • Do not try to organise the information at all - the purpose is to get it out and onto the page.
  • Use key words or phrases to write your ideas.
  • Always use the paper horizontally as this way you can fit more information.

Example 1 - Brainstorm of the topic 'History of antibiotics'
