Put simply, running concept lists are a set of lists, each list relating to a single concept, that you update continually as you learn more about each concept. They are easy to make and to maintain. And they are very handy tools for learning new concepts . . . or for reviewing old concepts.
But they are even more helpful for learning the connections between concepts . . . thus developing your critical thinking skills!
Concept lists are also called connection pages because they help you see connections.
I've outlined this ongoing study technique several times before. You may want to review those previous articles.
As you grow your library of running concepts lists, you'll find that you have constructed a personal encyclopedia of knowledge! One that you can build on (and refer back to) for a lifetime.
If you haven't bothered to learn about running concept lists before, you may want to reconsider this powerful tool.
Recently, I added this video to my page on Concept Lists found in the Lion Den Study Tips & Tools.
