Roundhouse Diagram

The Roundhouse diagram is a visual representation of a student’s understanding of a lesson.

1.  On the diagram, the center is called the hub.  The students rephrase the concept using OF and then break down the lesson concept into smaller sections using AND.

2.  The students then begin filling in the 7 wedges with different but related concepts. (chunking)

3.  Each wedge must contain a simple drawing of a picture or icon that relates to the chunk of written information (in short complete sentences) in that wedge.


For younger or struggling students, just write the concept in the hub, just require the of statement or complete the hub together.

Divide the wedges into no more than 9 wedges if additional concept space is needed.

Encourage color coding and sequencing reading clockwise starting at 12:00.
