Kirby goes onto share an example of a knowledge organiser for a year 7 unit on apartheid South Africa:

This approach has happily began to spread more widely. A maths teacher, William Emeny has written here about his taking on of knowledge organisers, sharing this helpful example:


James Theo has helped shared a Jekyll and Hyde knowledge organiser for English teachers here and he is working on collating such resources (find him on Twitter here):

James Theo has helpfully shared a blog about sharing knowledge organisers – see here.

The explicit focus on memorable knowledge, subject terminology and more, is a great place to start when responding to developing the new curriculum in our schools.
