Time Lines

This technique utilizes visual representation to improve the processing of material.


  • Begin with a horizontal line that represents the continuum of time.
  • Important events are inserted relative to each other, creating points on the line.
  • Each point that denotes an event should be marked with the date, a brief description of the event, and significant person(s) involved.
