The principle: SPACED RETRIEVAL PRACTICE

The principle: SPACED RETRIEVAL PRACTICE

Straightaway, please consider: Would it be helpful for parents to: Leave you to it, warning about living in a cardboard box if you dont revise? Confiscate your phone to stop you contacting their friends on Instagram? Be around not in the room, but pottering about nearby to provide a kind of non-intrusive monitoring? Show an interest when they return from work and offer to test you or simply make you cups of tea? Empathise rather than go on the attack? Even small remarks can aggravate fear, such as saying, Have you looked at your timetable? or, Do you know what you need to revise? Offer to help drafting a revision timetable? Take charge of back room operations: Make sure you have a well-ordered, quiet workspace with all the Post-it notes and fluorescent pens you need? Discuss removing your games console from your bedroom until exams are over? Ask you what you want from them? Ask If I think you are not doing enough work, am I allowed to say anything and whats a good time to say it? Check you know how to revise? UNDERSTAND IT You will need: Class books Text books Model answers You might also require:

Revision Guides Knowledge Organisers Revision Websites Old Exam papers (see TK website) In addition: Identify any bits of knowledge you have missing. Go to see your teacher to help fill any gaps and make your own notes e.g. using the Cornell method. What is the significance of this number? 138 138 hours 1 hour each night Monday-Thursday (56) 2 hours each weekend (22) 10 hours February half term (10) 50 hours Easter holiday (50) 138 hours divided by 9 subjects = 15 hours per subject to revise 2 years work! Expect The Best Thomas Keble School Easter Revision I suggest that for at least 5 days a week over the Easter holiday, you

work a school day: Session 1 9:00-9:50 Session 2 10:15-11:05 Session 3 11:30 12:20 Session 4 1:15 2:05 Session 5 2:30 3:20 You could even follow your school timetable. Expect The Best Thomas Keble School Timescales First exam is on 13th May 26 out of 48 exams before May half term implications for revision Study leave likely to begin Monday 20th May Lessons and in-school revision optional thereafter. Revision Planning Making the revision timetable Principle 1: SPACED RETRIEVAL PRACTICE When we learn something, we

forget it When we revisit something weve learned repeatedly, we remember it better This is shown in the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve Principle 2: Interleaving vs blocking Blocking your revision focusing on one topic for a long time then moving on to the next topic is inefficient. Interleaving your revision is far more effective as reducing the accessibility of information in memory fosters additional learning of that information. Principle 3: Interleaving and chunking For interleaving to work, you have to break down your revision into chunks Its no good putting Biology into your revision calendar you need to be specific GCSE Biology includes:

Health Responses to the environment Evolution Ecology Cells Photosynthesis Organisms and their environments Protein functions and uses Respiration Genetics Speciation Expect The Best Thomas Keble School Revision timetable Date/Session Mon 8th April 1

Expect The Best Thomas Keble School The importance of study breaks: Study time periods should be broken down into 20-25 minute sections with small rests in between. We tend to remember first things and last things rather than the things in between. So the more well-spaced and short breaks we have, the more beginnings and endings we have, and the better our brain will be able to remember. Brief breaks are also essential for relaxation: they relieve the muscular and mental tension that inevitably builds up during periods of intense concentration. So Chunking Break down the subjects you study into chunks you can revise Planning Plan an interleaved revision schedule to cover the chunks you have created Build in rest breaks Spaced retrieval
