There are lots of websites with ideas for students on revision strategies and how to structure their revision. However, with the exam season rapidly approaching, course content nearly if not already taught, and a focus on revision in lessons over the forthcoming weeks, I thought it would be useful to try and compile ideas for teachers with regards to planning revision activities for both in and beyond the classroom in one document.
Some of these ideas are for activities which could be adapted and used in lessons whilst others are for creating revision resources which could then be shared with students via email, the school network or online (for example on blogs) to help them with revision beyond the classroom.
I am also interested in bringing together ideas on how new technologies can be used to support staff in creating and sharing revision resources with students. I have therefore written this document which I hope can be updated with suggestions of strategies that have worked well for you which you would be happy to share with others.
Please do email any suggestions to me (contact at side of blog). Ideas can also be sent via twitter to @RobGeog.
Above all – I hope it is of some use to you in preparations and planning for the forthcoming revision period!
