This map should be done from either the internalist or contextualist perspective. Students should note which perspective they are taking when developing the map. Research and maps will need to be done before class. This can be done as an assignment and/or the students can present their findings to the class. Class time can be taken to make sure the students understand the two perspectives and understand how to use the mindmapping website (http://www.mindmeister.com/).
