Revision task menu

This revision task menu is similar to the learning grid based on the work by Tom Brush and written about elsewhere on this blog – https://jivespin.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/plenary-learning-grids-adding-student-choice-to-the-end-of-your-lessons/. The menu is made up of nine varied revision tasks which students can be applied to many topics regardless of subject and level of study. How the tasks are chosen is entirely up to the teacher and the class. Either students can choose freely which type of task to complete or the tasks can be selected at random, using dice or other ways to choose the task.

The revision task menu can be used as a focus for a revision session or set as homework where students have to complete a set number of revision tasks from the menu. To add competition and focus, points could be attached to the revision tasks based on difficulty and students could be set a target to reach a number of points based on their completion. How they reach that number is entirely up to the student in terms of the combination of tasks they complete to reach their target.
