How does the Chart Board work?

  • Each wedge of the red ring represents a chapter.
  • Each row of colored boxes extending from a wedge represents a part of the chapter. The closer to the red ring, the closer to the beginning of the chapter.
  • The colors in each row indicate which themes are “active” in that part of the chapter.

The Chart Board is interactive.

  • Themes: Hover over or tap any of the themes in the Theme Key to show only that theme. Click a theme in the Themes Key to lock it.
  • Summary: Hover over or tap any row of colored boxes to read the summary associated with that row. Click the row to lock the summary.
