A knowledge organiser is a set of key facts or information that pupils need to know and be able to recall in order to master a unit or topic.
Knowledge organisers are brilliant for revision. New GCSE specifications require learners to be able to retain large quantities of information in long-term memory. Specifying the exact knowledge through the use of knowledge organisers will help develop effective revision skills. Sequencing, explaining, checking, quizzing, practicing combining, testing and revisiting regularly are vital if students are to remember it for years to come. Based on the principle of retrieval practice, students are expected to revise 2 different subjects each night for 15 minutes.
