It takes practice to create good search words. Here you can practice some more.

Task 1:

You are working on an essay on moralism in childrens picture books, but you struggle to find information when searching for this term. Create a word-map around the term “Childrens picture books” to find other search words.

Task 2:

You want to write a paper on philosophy. Often, this will be regarded as a too wide study area. To limit your paper, you create a word map, specifying sub-categories of philosophy. Use the information bubbles connected to a field as help to chose the right word.

Task 3:

In your process of writing a paper, you need more information concerning Shitake mushrooms. Find how words from different categories can be used to describe your word, and place them correctly in this word map. Use the information bubbles connected to a field as help to chose the right word.

Task 4:

Now you have tried to sort previous word maps and hierarchies. Now it is your turn. Place your own key word on a piece of paper. What do you think are the subcategories of this term? Can you find broader terms that your term fits into?

Good luck!
