Lacking inspiration for engaging revision ideas? Delve into hanmphillips' resources. They include a number of innovative ways to stimulate learning, such as:

Quick revision questions - with formulae and data analysis, they make great starters for exam preparation.

Revision concept maps - particularly useful for dyslexic students.

Taboo and loop games - use tailor-made sets of these classic card games or get pupils to design their own.

An AFL feedback form.

A plenary plan giving 20 little- or no-preparation plenaries.

Role-play exercises in which students write letters to famous scientists to summarise ideas.

Assessed writing frames that make writing up a less daunting task.

What else?

Why not share your own revision ideas on TES?
