Good reflections everyone!
I view concept maps as useful ways to graphically communicate how we understand something, how we see the relationships between facts, concepts, ideas, properties….
The course concept map provides an armature of how I see the material of the course relating, and hopefully it helps you develop your own mental map of the concepts we will be discussing all semester.
Today in class we will work through the first reading content, and as we read we will work to build our own concept maps as a form of both active reading but also useful note-taking that can help deepen our understanding of the concepts we read.
Feel free to make use of the concept maps provided here: https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/arch1231/note-taking/
See you in class later this afternoon.
