Some great ideas here to review learning either at the end of the topic or for revision before final examinations...

...A good opportunity for pupils to reflect on their prior knowledge and areas that are lacking

A godsend for those students who find learning difficult and motivates the less willing.

  • The structured method of learning grids is of great value to students, especially if they find it difficult to absorb all the information in class.
  • Case study specific learning grids make perfect factsheets for revision.
  • Engaging diagrams break up text and engage visual learners.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8638)

For students with poor attendance... they can use this to catch up along with a text book... This will save teacher time and encourage independence. It will make for better progress than simply reading notes of other students. The resource will be excellent for end of unit summary work or student revision before the exams. It covers all the specification... and will help students feel secure in their preparation.
