    Unhappy I am not understanding

    Are you able to narrow your topic to a single spoke or to a subheader of a spoke on the map? How does mind-mapping prepare you for outlining?

    What does this mean in lamest terms please?

    Ok...it is a little confusing but I will try to explain it.

    First of all...to narrow a topic means to make it smaller and more direct and focused.

    So to narrow mean to focus
    When it says spoke I belive it is talking about the smaller topics that come from the main topic. If I am correct then it is asking the person to focus the topic to one subtopic or point on the map (the MINDMAP...that you are drawing).

    Then the part about mindmapping is clearer. Mindmapping is when you take the ideas from your mind and put them on paper. You just start putting things on paper. For example if you start with exercise as your main idea...put that in a circle and then from that circle you add other ideas in circles (the spokes or subheadings).

    So it wants you to mindmap an idea and then reduce the subheadings or ideas into ONE subidea.

    Does that make it easier to undertsand?
