Double Bubble Map


This Wiki description is actually an advertisement for a system of diagrammatic thinking derived from Section 3 of Upton & Sampson's out of print workbook text, Creative Analysis, for which Innovative Sciences held or still holds the copyright. Creative analysis, in turn is based upon Albert Upton's book, Design for Thinking Pacific Press. The latter book is derived from Ogden & Richards' book, The Meaning of Meaning. The latter authors based their work on that of Victoria Lady Welby, whose writings were directly influenced by a long term exchange of letters with the great American philosopher, Charles Sanders Peirce, developer of the logic of semiotics. Creative Analysis, when taken in its entirety, enables the development of discernment, analysis and linguistic skills in such a way that students are able to apply these in myriad ways. Unfortunately, by leaving out Sections 1 & 2, Thinking Maps removes the depth factor from this remarkable Peircean system.

Thinking Maps are visual tools for learning, and include eight visual patterns each linked to a specific cognitive process. Teachers may apply Thinking Maps in all content areas and all grade levels. The eight map types are:

By linking each thinking skill to a unique and dynamic visual representation, the language of Thinking Maps becomes a tool set for supporting effective instructional practice and improving student performance. Teachers and students, therefore, independently apply thinking skills for their own learning while also having a common visual language for cooperative learning. By having a rich language of visual maps based on thinking processes, learners are no longer confused by poorly organized brainstorming webs or an endless array of static graphic organizers. They are enabled to move from concrete to abstract concepts, think with depth, and directly apply their thinking to complex tasks.
