Professional Development activity - 2 hour learning module
Each week the Secondary Magazine will include a Professional Development activity. Available in PDF format, this series of learning modules are ideal for giving a focus to a department meeting or inset session.
Each week we will publish a new learning module, which over the weeks will build up in to a shopping list of PD activities so that you can pick and choose the materials that best suit your own development needs.

The first twelve modules will cover the following areas: Self Evaluation, Why do we teach Mathematics?, Mathematics learning script, Pathways and option: KS3 to KS5, Mathematical vocabulary, AfL: Using the lesson objective - overview, Group Work, C/D Borderline, Revision latest, Technology for learning, Questioning script and AfL: Formative use of summative tests.

This week's module considers revision techniques to support your learners.
An activity is provided for members of your department to complete prior to the module, or it can be done together as a starter. It poses the questions 'What is revision?' and 'What/when and how do you revise?'.  The activity then focuses on different revision techniques and how best they could be used in the classroom with students.

Undertaking this module should allow colleagues to consider the pedagogy of revision and hence plan and provide an effective revision programme for mathematics students at their school.

I have used this at our recent Faculty meeting (Apr 2013). It was very well received and facilitated some excellent discussions about revision and sharing of best practice amongst the faculty.
I had to squash it a bit as I only had 1 hour rather than the recommended 2, but think that 90 minutes would be perfect. This would allow time for separate group discussions and then coming back to the whole faculty for a wider discussion.
This module has had a positive effect on the teacher's immediate practice and on our SoW for next year.
