UPDATE: I’d forgotten that I’d shared this a few years ago. Today, I’ve published a blog post https://teachcomputing.wordpress.com/2016/04/30/3-revision-strategies/ with links to a more recent version of this document. You’ll probably find this more useful than the rest of the resources here.
Previously shared in 2013: Our school operates a school-wide revision plan for 11 weeks from 11th March to May 19th in the period before the summer exams.
Pupils in my Year 11 class are given a plan to follow with two topics per week for them to follow, in effect prescribed revision homework.
I have spent a few hours putting together a plan for my students, and I hope that by sharing it here, it will save others some time. If you want to know more about how I am using it, please ask me.
I’ve included the week by week revision plan as well as the exam papers I will be using.
The materials follow the acronym ‘USA’ which means Understand, Summarise, Answer. I’ve provided all pupils with -a blank exercise book -a copy of Susan Robson’s book -4 x Exam papers from Spr 2011 & Summer 2012
