Mapping your heartbreak is a method developed by Angela Maiers. Many teachers have followed this method in order to help students share what breaks their heart about the world.

Where will heartbreak maps go?

How do you add a topic to the main page?

B. Individual Heartbreak Topic Pages

What will go on this page?
On the Heartbreak topic page, students will write text, share their graphics and their heartbreak maps to talk about what breaks their heart about the world.
How do you make this page?
The first time a student clicks on the page, there will be an option to make a new blank page or to use a template. Please use the Student Heartbreak template. Teachers may choose to click on the new page and apply the template when they make the page to prevent problems.

Wiki Editing Tips:

Note that kids will be editing the pages at the same time, in some cases. For this reason, we teach students to edit in small moments of time and not to leave the page open as they research. If someone else is editing the page, then click cancel as they edit.
