Donovan Mind Maps

Saskia kindly did two complete mind maps with quotes as well as four mind maps with notes but no quotes. These are for you to add your own quotes. Remember; transforming these by changing them enables you to remember things better!

Click to download or print off. I’ll also add to the S4 @Donovan page available through the top menu.
