Revision Technique: GCSE Rivers

Revision Technique: GCSE Rivers

A lesson focussing on techniques for revision. Examples used are from the rivers GCSE topic. I have written it for the AQA 9-1 GCSE, however I would assume that most, if not all of the ideas are on most specs. The lesson looks at memorising key words, mnemonics, use of pictures to jog memory, ways to summarise and revise processes, practice questions and mind mapping. Slightly more than a lesson’s worth, but you can select what activites your students require. Please note that there is some overlap betweent this lesson and the ‘Revision Technique: GCSE Geography’ lesson.
