Revision Plan New OCR Explaining the Modern World History A.

Revision Plan New OCR Explaining the Modern World History A.

This is a brilliant guide to help students prioritise and conduct their own independent revision for their GCSE. This gives a break down of OCR's Explaining the Modern World History A, with the Depth study of USA 1945-1975 and Personal rule of Charles I, plus War and Society and the castle study of Framlingham castle. This document can of course be adapted to fit the various other OCR modules, as and where relevant. As the new course requires so much content, we have chosen to give this to our yr 11 at the start of the year to help them build up a bank of resources in preparation for the exams in the summer. The chart allows students to complete the chart to show how confident they are with certain topics, and allows them to go back and reflect on specific areas. The aim is for them to get to point (hopefully by May) where they can happily complete the green smiley face for all of the sections; showing that they are confident with all the content for the GCSE!
