5 Minute Revision Bites – Creating a Revision Timetable

This is the fourth in a series of resources called ‘Five Minute Revision Bites’. This series provides a suite of resources that present revision techniques which aim to make students independent in creating an effective revision programme. This presentation draws heavily on the work of David Hodgson and Tim Benton and focuses on creating a revision timetable.

Each presentation should take no longer than five minutes to give to students and therefore would be ideal for a tutorial session or as part of a revision technique carousel.

Last minute revision strategies presentation

My students asked me to put this presentation on last minute revision strategies on my blog to share. The presentation focuses on revision strategies that take little time to implement but can make a huge impact on the application and recall of information. Hope it is useful to teachers who might want to make a similar presentation to their students.
