1. Thinking Maps Thinking Maps Training February 3, 2010

2. The Brace Map WHOLE TO PART RELATIONSHIPS Name the thought process:

3. BRACE MAP Identifying Whole to Part Relationships The Brace Map: • is used for analyzing the component parts of physical or concrete objects • is used in identifying the spatial relationship of parts to the whole or “structural analysis” • almost always uses nouns to name the parts of an object

4. Guiding Questions for Constructing a Brace Map • What is the name of the whole object? • What are the major physical parts of the object? • What are the subparts of each major part? • What is this object a part of? • What parts, if any, are missing?

5. The Brace Map + + = = + + Whole to Parts

6. Key Words • Parts of • Show the structure • Take apart • Identify the structure • Physical components • Anatomy

7. Guiding Questions for a Frame of Reference • How do you know what you know about identifying the parts? • What prior knowledge and/or experiences influence your understanding about this object? • Where did you get you information? • What source(s) did you use to identify the whole and its parts? • Is one source better than another for this information?

8. Using the Brace Map Across Disciplines Math { { { 400 100 100 100 100 10 10 10 1 1 Parts of a Number Understanding place value and the value of each number 432 30 2

9. We need to know how to convert % to decimals. We could use 10%. We have to know that this is a two step problem. We need some prior knowledge about what a “tip” is.

10. Using the Brace Map Across Disciplines Music: Structural Parts of an Instrument Help students see relationships between larger parts and smaller parts

11. Using the Brace Map Across Disciplines Science: Structural Analysis of Objects Can help students visualize the new vocabulary words as they analyze scientific structures.
