#6 ‘Underground Discourse Markers Map’

I have had lots and lots of compliments on Twitter regarding this map. I am quite proud of it as it looks quite professional considering I created it on Microsoft Word! I got the idea from @LauraLolder who created a fab Underground map style wall display. This version is great for (smaller) wall displays and for laminated mats!

As you can see, it’s simply a list of discourse markers that’s great for supporting students with their writing and pushing them to extend their responses. There are several different ‘lines’ on the map representing the main six categories of discourse markers: comparing, contrasting, adding, emphasising, sequencing and providing examples. The map also has a QR code which links to ‘Analysis Squares’ (please see previous post).

  1. I LOVE it! (And it’s so full of charming adverbs!) It’s like what I did with Word, to draw house floor plans. Proof that we can all do more than just type words, if we permit our imaginations to soar.

  2. Reblogged this on mapsworldwide blog and commented:

    This appeals to me both as a variation on an underground map and as a writing tool!
