Study Strategy – Mind Maps

In last week’s Dean’s Assembly, Y13 Academic Captain Celeste Fontein shared with the Year 11s a study strategy that she has found very helpful for her success. Mind maps are a useful way of making sense of a topic to help you to set up what you need to study as well as providing a visual representation of a topic to help you to remember key information. Doing mind maps will engage your brain, help you to make connections and assist you to see the big picture.

The following image shows you how to approach making a mind map. It is worth undertaking this tasks for each Achievement Standard you are sitting in the exams. Check gaps with your peers and get feedback from your teachers.
