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. By freeing themselves from the limiting belief that "you can't draw" readers will move into the world of visible thinking. With this book teachers will be able to build on what they already know about the skill of communicating in words and pictures, and lead students through activities that promote thinking skills, and make their classroom a more lively and engaging place to learn. 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. Visual thinking is the perfect companion to Mapping Inner Space: Learning and Teaching Visual Mapping (ISBN 1904424473). It provides: Hundreds of easy-to-draw symbols for teaching thinking skills; Templates that students can use to help them think through challenging problems
