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.
- 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.
- Only highlight the core information and do not highlight everything - what is actually needed?
- 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.
