I (Ross) would use this concept map for an in-depth novel study. The students are required to read the novel for detail, refer back to specific portions of the text, and respond to the text. The students would also have to navigate the web mapping tools as some of the activities require them to change colours or add information. I have also included some hyperlinks which will help the students practice their research and inquiry skills.

This assignment to use writing skills, reading skills, reflecting skills, math skills, categorization, memory, research, visual representation, as well as a number of computer skills. This activity meets the ICT learner outcomes C1 2.1 and 2.2, C4 2.2, C6 2.3 and 2.5, F4 2.1, P1 2.1, and P2 2.2. This extensive type of study would span a large block of time and could be incorporated into a few different subjects.
