Y11 Revision Methods

  1. 1. Trailblazers American West Railways Mormons Homesteaders Gold Rush Native Americans Law & Order Indian Wars TOPIC ON A PAGE Lifestyle Beliefs Lifestyle Try and summarise a whole topic on a page of A3 using a series of interconnecting mind-maps. Use images if this helps you. Break all the topics down and refuse to go over the page. Then stick it on your bedroom wall.
  2. 2. LIVING GRAPH Time Theme : e.g. Public Health over time When looking at change over time. Take a theme and consider how it has gone forwards (improved or progressed) and gone backwards (regressed). Can be used for Medicine and the American West. In order to be of any real use you need to annotate it in more detail than in the exemplar here. Prehistoric medicine – no public health due to lack of government or organisation. Egypt and Greece – improvements in public health due to the increasing role of government. The Asclepia began to provide medical care. Roman – Public health improved under strong governments who improved infrastructure such as fresh water (Aqueducts) and fountains, baths etc.

You can use them to store information on a topic, or define key-words or even place a past-paper question on one side and then produce a plan on the other – one of the best uses when you have finished is to use them as a form of test. Either on your own or with another person. See if you can suggest what information is going to be on the back of the card! It doesn’t matter whether you start on the back or the front. It is all good practice.
  4. 4. <ul><li>SOURCE QUESTIONS </li></ul><ul><li>You need to divide source questions into bits. </li></ul><ul><li>First of all check the question – what is it asking you to do? </li></ul><ul><li>If the question asks what you can learn, tell see or what the source shows. Then you only need information from the source (using the green box questions). </li></ul><ul><li>If the question asks how useful, reliable how much you can rely on the source or whether it has value then you need to use to green questions to show how the source provides useful information and the yellow questions to show what might make it hard to fully trust or may be less useful. But you need to explain why using the questions below. DON’T just say biased! Use this model to train yourself into good source analysis in the exam. </li></ul><ul><li>Nature: </li></ul><ul><li>What type of source is it? </li></ul><ul><li>Origin: </li></ul><ul><li>Who produced it? </li></ul><ul><li>Where was it produced? </li></ul><ul><li>When was it produced? </li></ul><ul><li>Purpose: </li></ul><ul><li>Why was it produced? </li></ul><ul><li>Who was it produced for? </li></ul>What can you tell/see… What can you suggest/infer…
