What can you do to help

What can you do to help?

  • All students have been given the opportunity to buy revision guides appropriate for their course. (If you do not have them please leave your name with me after the forum).

  • All students will be given access to Kerboodle, a on-line resource, for free.

  • Encourage students to revise effectively using a variety of techniques e.g. mind mapping.


What can you do to help1

What can you do to help?

  • Make sure that students have an understanding of the command words for questions.

  • Ensure students are fully prepared for their ISAs (can make a difference of one grade).


Mind mapping

Mind Mapping

  • Mind Mapping is a useful technique that helps you learn more effectively and improves the way that you record information.

  • By using Mind Maps, you can quickly identify and understand the structure of a subject.

  • It allows students to see the way that pieces of information fit together, as well as recording the raw facts contained in normal notes.
