Revision Techniques (Jedi Mind Tricks)

This little lesson was designed to show students different ways that they could revise for exams. As well as the main lesson it also includes a Diamond 9 which could be used as an extension or follow up. There is also an assembly version, which the link takes you to. I've also included a link to a blank lesson plan, because with the template each plan took about 15 minutes to do and could be useful for teacher trainees.

GCSE Exam Technique - How Memory Works

Produced this lesson to use with my year 11's in preparation for their exams.

Looks at different memory games to get them thinking about how their memory works - then explains how short term memory and long term memory work and how things can interfere with their memory.

My class really enjoyed this - both the memory games and how it applies to revision. They came away with a better understanding of strategies to use for revision.

I can't take credit for the Word Document, as I downloaded from a different source myself, but the powerpoint is a great way to show and encourage pupils how to revise properly. Hope you find it helpful.
