'Sick of Revision' last 6 lessons for any subject or topic.

'Sick of Revision' last 6 lessons for any subject or topic.

These tasks lend themselves to the revision of any topic or content subject and all you have to do by way of preparation is apply the tasks to the specifics of your subject and provide the postit notes. Slide one has 6 images – choose any icon to click on in a way that engages the class [throw a di, ask a question, choose a quiet student to make the choice]. A hyperlink will take you straight to the relevant slide, where the tasks will come up in steps on your click [adapt the wording of these to suit your specifics if you wish]. At the end of the lesson ‘end show’ to get back to slide 1 for the next lesson. Each task is explained in your ‘recipe for success’ word document and alternatives or ways to differentiate suggested. The central idea is to get students helping each other while you facilitate only when required.
