Quizlet and Studying for Tests

Admittedly one needs to know a lot more than just vocabulary in economics, but it is certainly a place to start.  So one thing you can do is to have your students use Quizlet to see if they know all of their vocabulary.   Quizlet allows students to use traditional flash cards as well as a number of learning games.  You can even set it up for your class and each student can compete against one another.   Above is an example of the Age of Jackson.  You can choose to make the cards yourself, have your students do so or even just use someone else's as I have done here.  But if you go with the last choice, make sure you like each card.  Alternatively, if you set up an account, you could make a copy of someone else's cards and then make them exactly the way you want them.

This was a great post. I have used Quizlet my self to study for some of the larger tests I have been required to take. I like the idea to use it in the classroom. Using it as a game would really help the students learn the information. It is also a tool they can take with them to future learning endeavors.

Hi Ken, I'm Alex Odell and I am in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I am a believer in Quizlet. I use Quizlet to study now, but I use the vocab to study the who, what, when, where, why, and the significance. If you use the cards right and you know what the teacher wants then you will be studying to your best ability.
