This academic year I started teaching the International Baccalaureate Diploma course – Environmental Systems and Societies. It’s a course that I was completely new to but I love it. I started making revision knowledge organisers for my year 13 students to support their revision.
It’s not the type of Knowledge Organiser that are doing the rounds at the moment where all of the information is already present for the student to learn from, but instead it is a way for students to recap and organise their knowledge and understanding using their notes and assessed work.
Students quite simply fill in the boxes with relevant information from their notes, work and textbook. I had a student email me recently to ask if I would be making more of them because they are finding them particularly useful for developing their revision technique.
I’ve done them so far for the topics that I teach (ESS is split between two teachers) and will be making a start of the topics that I don’t teach shortly.
I will be uploading them as they are completed to the ESS revision resource google drive here. Please feel free to download and use them with your students.
Hope they are of use.
