Leonard Shedletsky (University of Southern Maine, USA )Jeffrey S. Beaudry (University of Southern Maine, USA)

Scholars of critical thinking have begun to gather evidence for the claimthat mapping arguments and concepts aids the student in developingtheir critical thinking as well as their ability to write high quality essays.We are putting together an edited volume of classroom tested uses ofmapping with regard to critical thinking and writing. If you haveundertaken such a practice, kindergarten through postgraduate level,please consider writing a proposal for a chapter in this book.
