1. Put some version of the map up in a convenient location or give learners copies. See example below and notes about different ways of using the map.
2. Briefly state that the group will be tracking progress and planning with the map from time to time. Note how the map uses the metaphor of ‘peeling the fruit’, getting familiar with the surface of something, seeking puzzles and mysteries to investigate, and pursuing these in various ways to arrive at core understandings.
3. Refer to the map to choose next steps and mark progress from time to time during the exploration of a topic (no need to do everything every time). Use it as a way of thinking about what routines to use or simply what kind of conversation or other activity to have.
4. When the map is used collectively by a class, you may want to invite students to put up Post-its on the map over time to mark insights associated with any of the map elements.
