My ENGL 2 teacher recommended something similar for me. It actually helped. Where as an outline is a logical structure that mirrors the essay. Random association is wandering through the process and writing whatever comes to mind,. It is not structured. It is free association with the material you have on hand. It's the sort of thing that can be revisited when you write the actual essay. It can give you material to adjust the outline or fill in the essay.
it's somewhere in between brainstorming and outline. You look at ur brainstorming and organize it. then you decide on what you want your paper to be about
It's more like a diagram, and helps you warp your head around everything you're saying in your paper. There are several version base on what or how you're writing. Check it out the attachment for a picture, I'm gonna revise it because I can find a good one... One sec....
Here ya go, this should hopefully make more sense: Intro: Grab attention -> generalize topic -> state thesis Body: Point A: evidence -> interpretation -> relevance Point B: evidence -> interpretation -> relevance Point C: evidence -> interpretation -> relevance Conclusion: paraphrase resolved thesis -> generalize resolved topic -> release attention memorably
Okay, thanks! Are the fishbone and pyramid models what mapping looks like then? It seems like a flow chart.
Your essay should flow, yes. Almost all models like these flow top-bottom, or left-right. Some are very different, but until you get to higher rhetoric (writing) courses and learn things like "warrant" and "rebuttals" this should work great. It's simple and straightforward, and that will help you write clearly and purposefully.
Always opt for the sleep option, you will notice clear cognitive differences in how you tackle the outline, topic of writing. I just aim to write as much as possible as often as possible, don't mind if its crap cos good ideas come out of crap. Also write as honestly and frankly as possible to aid ideas thoughts etc coming out.
