How to use a Define HOT Map


In the middle of the map you write your topic word that you wish to define. The inner box is where you have pictures or words that are related to the topic word. The outer box has things that are not related to the topic word. Students at the early level may wish to draw pictures to represent their ideas whereas students at the senior level may write words or phrases to represent their ideas.
