Structured overview

A structured overview is exactly that – an overview of a topic, organised in a structured, hierarchical, graphic manner.

  • Start with the topic/subtopic heading at the top of the page.
  • Determine how many subheadings are going to form the next layer down and organise them across the page.
  • Link the heading to each subheading with a line.
  • Determine how many sub-subheadings or key terms each subheading requires, and organise them across the page.
  • Link each subheading to its set of terms with a lighter/thinner line.

A structured overview is a form of concept map. It may be more appropriate to use a concept map rather than a structured overview when organising the results of students' brainstorming.
