a concept map

LOL! My kids had to do concept maps (thankfully, not too many). The concept of a "concept map" was too hard for them at the time, and the different types of relationships they were supposed to be indicating were too abstract. Therefore, they put down whatever they wanted; and the teachers, unable to distinguish between incorrect relationships or merely ones that were'nt intuitively clear to them, gave everyone A's. What a crock.

Forget concept maps; teach the kids to take good notes, outline and summarize.
