5. In clustering, your topic is listed at the top of the page.
6. In clustering, your topic must be written in the middle of the page and circled.
7. You should circle your ideas that relate directly to the topic; then connect each to
the center circle with a line.
8. You may develop more ideas that relate to the ideas that you have already
connected to your topic.
9. Branching also contains a visual element.
10.Branching begins with your topic written on the left side of the paper, about
halfway down the page.

second column a couple of inches to the right of the centered topic and join them
to the topic with lines.
12. It is likely that you will think of ideas that relate closely to items in your second
column, and write them in a third column, connected with lines to the ideas in the
second column that inspired them.
