Thinking Maps, developed by Dr. David Hyerle, are visual teaching tools
that foster and encourage lifelong learning. They are based on a simple
yet profound insight: The one common instructional thread that binds
together all teachers, from pre-kindergarten through postgraduate, is
that they all teach the same thought processes.

Based on thorough and well-accepted academic study and brain research,
the eight Thinking Map tools correspond with eight fundamental thinking
processes. More than simple task-specific graphic organizers, our tools can
be utilized individually or in various combinations to form a Common Visual
Language for students and teachers at all grade levels, in all subjects.
