Defining the term, Describing its essential characteristics, Providing examples of the idea, and Offering non-examples of the idea. This strategy stresses understanding words within the larger context of a reading selection by requiring students, first, to analyze the items (definition and characteristics) and, second, to synthesize/apply this information by thinking of examples and non-examples.

Figure 1 Node is the name for important terms or concepts. Nodes are usually depicted with circles drawn around the term or concept, such as the nodes for "Living Things" and "Plants" drawn above (Figure 1). We can use concept maps when we begin working together on a problem, during the problem solving steps, and at the end of problem solving.
