I use this for either a revision/consolidation/homework task. I change the headings and subheadings depending on the topic we are studing. Students then have to recap what they have learn trying to be concise. They also include an image which either best sums up the topic or they draw one. Then in the grey boxes they sum up the topic in key details. This works for lots of subjects and I have done it for history, sociology and RE. It also works well for book reviews.
