Create a Metalearning Map

These maps should break your topic down into 3 categories:

1.1. Concepts: relate to what you need to understand.

1.2. Facts: relating to what needs to be memorized.

1.3. Procedures: relate to what needs to be done.

You must appreciate that not all skills will require all 3 procedures. E.g; learning a basketball shot will require you to focus on the procedure almost entirely. Once you have considered each of the categories, you should focus on the most relevant category.
