Edexcel History - Paper 2 - Exam Planning Cheat Sheets

Cheat sheets are an effective means of preparing students for their Edexcel 9-1 history exams. These easy to use sheets can provide students with a framework for planning answers to potential exam questions as part of their revision. Teachers can issue these templates to students alongside a list of potential questions for both sections of Paper 2. This is an effective means of revision, and can be used by teachers to specifically direct students' in their revision - something which is not always easy to do. For those of you teaching American West, I have already produced such supplementary sheets which are also available on TES.
