Exam Literacy : A guide to doing what works (and not what doesn`t) to better prepare students for exams Paperback

Description

Unlike most other study guides, this book focuses on the latest cognitive research into revision techniques - proven procedures which actually work. In the light of the recent decision to make all subjects at GCSE linear, so that students will be tested in one-off exams, it will be even more important to prepare students effectively for exams.

Accordingly, this book concentrates on what works more effectively in terms of revision strategies: practice testing, distributed practice, elaborative interrogation and self-explanation, whilst setting out what doesn't work as effectively: re-reading, highlighting, summarising, etc.

Uniquely, it also includes some subject-specific examples based on the new specification content, showing how these proven revision strategies could work alongside subject content.

An exceptional and essential research-based guide for all teachers looking to improve exam results in schools and colleges.
