How To Revise 1. You need to know what to revise for each subject. To start with, students must know what they need to learn- They will have Personal Learning Checklists (PLCs) like these for all their subjects. They should begin by checking to see that they have notes/revision guides that cover these areas. If not they should ask their teacher. They can then identify areas that they feel least confident with and start their revision here. Making the Revision Timetable- when will I study what? I want to average between 2 and 3 hours per day

Having identified areas in each subject where they wish to begin revision they will need to create a Revision Tip: I can get some good work done onTimetable Saturday It will really help to ensure that I revise all the things I need to properly, if I have organised a revision timetable

Why Had A Boom Occurred in America in the 1920s? 1. The First World War 1. The First World War For most of the First World War the USA followed a policy of isolationism- they did not want to be involved in the war. During this time America made lots of money selling weapons to Britain and France, it also took over the markets around the world previously supplied by Britain and Germany (They were busy building weapons and fighting rather than trading) and made big profits. They also loaned large amounts of money to Britain and France which had to be paid back with interest. For most of the First World War the USA followed a

and tied together with other revision cards for the same topic using string or a treasury tag Now it is time to get tested! The student can give their revision card to someone else and ask them to test them. If they dont remember information they can go back to their revision. If the test is successful the student updates their PLC and moves to the next

area/topic on the PLC, repeating the process Other Revision Methods e l g n a i r T a f o a e r

A The t h g i e H X = Base 2 Stick Post it notes with key facts on, in different places around your house where you will see them as you walk round- E.g. On your mirror, on the fridge etc.

Mind Maps Record yourself reading some key points from notes and play these back when you are travelling/running/just before sleep) Obviously youd just use your phone! Here are some you should be familiar with- what others could you think of- the more unusual the better because theyre more memorable! Mnemonics Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain

Acronyms BIDMAS Picture Stories Turn information you wish to remember into pictures and create a story to remember them. This is a technique used by people who wish to remember large amounts of information. Have a go at the exercise on the following 2 slides. television Target Deer Donuts Cow

Mousetrap Mouse Lobster Fish Bowl Cake Milk Coombe scissors Chair

(Top) Hat Bear Present Elephant Clown Bed 5 minutes You have 5 minutes to turn each word into a picture- after that time your pictures will be taken away from you - how many can you remember now? 5 minutes

Now use your pictures/words to create a story to help you remember the objects/words in order- does this help? Timelines These are very good for learning the Chronological order of events. Adding pictures, colour and being creative will help you to remember more. So overall- Key Points 1. We cannot revise until we are clear what we will need to know and we have something to revise from. 2. We will not be able to revise all the information we need effectively unless we are organised- we need a carefully thought out timetable. 3. Revision must have a PRODUCT and using different methods is more effective than 1. 4. Even if we know everything- unless we know HOW

to use the information as the examiner wants us toit will not help. 5. We must ACTUALLY get on and do it- NOW!
