Summarising and Chunking Information

Chunking information into manageable chunks to revise is a powerful strategy as it aids motivation and ensures your working memory is not overwhelmed.

  1. Breaking up the information into paragraph or section chunks – this ensures you can work through, revise and learn, one part of the text at a time. Give each section a heading to support your understanding.
  2. Only highlight the core information and do not highlight everything - what is actually needed?
  3. Take out the information you have highlighted and bullet point it onto a revision card – use this knowledge to explain the ‘story’ and narrative and to test yourself.
