Thinking Maps - this would be a great reference sheet for students.
my favorite website for thinking maps so far...definitely check it out, very detailed examples and directions

Thinking Maps help students to organize their thinking and to dig a little deeper into their learning. I LOVE using these maps in my classroom and have seen SUCH a difference in student comprehension of stories, skills, and concepts. This resource includes:- A teacher cheat sheet of the name of each map and a short description- A description of each map and its possible uses- Depth and complexity icons- Sample maps for all 8 Thinking Maps- Maps for comprehension skills, grammar skills…
