Why ChartaCourse?

ChartaCourse study guides offer a unique learning methodology by presenting content in “Concept Maps” that embed all content — case briefs, essentials, readings, problems, diagrams, etc. — within the chart. Just click on a concept, and the content appears.

ChartaCourse Study Guides Add More To Your Study Experience!

These concept maps constantly visually reinforce how each legal concept is related to every other concept.

As you explore the content, you build a trail from the general to the particular–allowing you to see both the conceptual framework and the particular information of the individual page at the same time.

That way you can see both the forest and the trees. Simultaneously. Always.

The research is unequivocal–concept maps combined with text are superior to text alone in both the breadth and depth of understanding they foster:

“Concept mapping was found to benefit learners across a broad range of educational levels, subject areas, and settings.

“The evidence that concept maps can be more effective than text passages for conveying detailed information reinforces the notion that concept maps have more to offer than the mere reduction of information.

“The evidence presented in this review should persuade teachers to make extensive, well-planned use of concept mapping activities and preconstructed concept maps.”
