A mind map is a refined cluster. Everything irrelevant is omitted. The main ideas branch off the central theme; examples and details branch off of the main ideas. A mind map gives a spatial, graphic overview of the essay's structure.
"Inspiration", a software program that allows one to create and move between mind maps and outlines, is available in the Assistive Technology Center (SS 162).
