Blog(s) of the week – 19th April 2015

Two blogs have caught my eye this week that tie nicely into exam revision.

1. Knowledge organisers – specify subject knowledge in meticulous detail – by Joe Kirby.

In this post Joe makes a case for being relentless specific with the subject knowledge that students need to know. This takes the form of one side of A4 – a knowledge organiser. This is not only useful for revision but also at the beginning of the teaching cycle of a new topic.

2. Sequencing lessons in the run up to exams – by Andy Tharby.

Andy’s post outlines his plan for revision in the run up to the exams with memory in mind. He also makes use of Joe’s knowledge organisers idea.
