This is a "hand-mnemonic" to help you tomorrow with remembering those stages of Mitosis.

Firstly the accronym: IPMAT
Remember Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase and telophase by memorising the accronym

Next this is how you remember what all the chromosomes do during the phases
(Fingers are chromosomes)

Interphase
Image
Chromosomes cannot be seen. Cell is considered living.

Prophase
Image
Chromsomes appear

Metaphase
Image
Chromosomes line up along the equator

Anaphase
Image
Chromosomes are pulled to opposite poles by spindle fibres

Telophase
Image
Two new cells are formed

These are more like memory cues than actual revision as many more details need to be learnt obviously. They can be particularly effective when your slightly confused however.

Hope I helped
