Quizlet

Imagine you have access to hundreds or thousands of created flashcards to study with or you can create your own flashcard sets to share with your students.  Quizlet lets you do just that.  With a free account you can create fun powerful study tools for your students.  

Quizlet gives you five ways (modes) to study:

  1. Familiarize
  2. Learn
  3. Test – short answer, matching, MC, T/F
  4. Scatter – matching game
  5. Space Race – race the clock

As a classroom teacher you can create flashcard sets for your students, providing a quick easy way to differentiate instruction in your classroom (create sets for remedial work, on target work and advanced work).   You can monitor the work and progress of your students.  If you don’t have time to create a class set you can find sets created by other teachers.  Students can create their own sets as well.

What sets are already created you ask? Well, let me give you a few ideas (this is a VERY incomplete list by the way ):

  • Books (Animal Farm, Beowulf, Lord of the Flies, To Kill a Mocking Bird etc.)
  • Music (CLassical Music, Jazz, Piano, Music History, etc. )
  • Visual Arts ( Art History, Artists, Sculpture, etc.)
  • Authors ( Dante, Dickens, Homer, Poe, etc.)
  • Literature ( Essays, Fiction, Manga, Plays, etc)
  • Parts of Speech ( Adjectives, Grammar, Nouns, Verbs, etc)
  • Languages
  • Chemistry
  • Engineering
  • Health Sciences
  • Life Sciences
  • Earth Sciences
  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • History, Countries, Regions, Cities, Civics, etc.
  • Standardized Tests (GMAT, GRE, LSAT, Driver Ed, ACT, SAT, AP – Bio, English, Chemistry… etc)
  • Professional and Careers

Ok, I think  you get the picture!  This is a great resource for teachers of all content areas, and all grade levels!  Give it a try and let me know what you think!
