The Big Picture

The best way to aid your understanding of history is to make sure you are confident with the big ‘overview’ story before you begin revising individual topics.

  • Create a timeline to identify the key events in a topic and colour code the themes. E.g. Elizabeth’s reign.
  • Mapping out what you can remember about a topic before you start, e.g. The treatment of disease through time or the Weimar Republic 1919 1929

Transform It

Graphic organisers are a great way of ‘transforming’ your notes / information into visual revision topics.  They can be used to create links, show a narrative, identify the causes / consequences and importance of something.

How to use in history:

  1. Causation - Create a visual flow diagram of the  chronological events in a time period e.g. the Nazi consolidation of power.
  2. Change and Continuity Create a Venn diagram to show what changed and did not in medical time period.
  3. Concept Mapping At the end of a week, mind map all you can remember about a topic and link area together. Then add to your mind map using a different colour using notes.

Mind Maps

Mind Maps can include one of the eight topics in the middle.  You should then add in each of the subheadings: 
For example:-  Title: Islamic Practices in the Middle.  Subheadings: Shahadah, Salah, Zakat, Sawm, Hajj, festivals and Jihad. 
Then complete each subheading - use notes to write down all the important facts about it.  For example:- Jihad - There are two types, Greater and Lesser Jihad.  Greater is the inward struggle to resist temptation and to strive to always be a good Muslim by following the Five Pillars and Lesser Jihad is to defend one’s faith.
Colour code, all religious quotes in one colour.
