    Question Questions

    How can you narrow your topic to a single spoke or to sub-header of a spoke of the map? How does this type of prewriting activity prepare you for outlining?

    Welcome, Robert and teshawanda.

    Circle Diagramming
    1. Write your topic inside a circle in the middle of a sheet of paper.

    2. Draw a number of "spokes" radiating from the circle outwards - about five or ten of them.

    3. Label each of these spokes with a question related to your topic, such as "What is it?" "How does it work?" "Who or what does it affect?"

    4. Add potential answers or responses to these questions at the end of each question-spoke. Don't just fill in one answer per question; some questions can generate many potential answers.

    5. You can then turn each "answer" cluster into a circle with spokes of its own, with more question "spokes" coming off of them and generating more answers/responses.

    All the best.

    How can you narrow your topic to a single spoke or to a sub-header of a spoke on the map? How does this type of prewriting activity prepare you for outlining?
