How I Use It
Quizlet is great for the extension of my students' weekly vocabulary words. My students work with ten vocabulary words each week, and we do a variety of activities with these words in the classroom. Quizlet allows my students to take that work with them even when they leave my classroom. It's a great review tool for them to study for their quizzes. In fact, the games, including Space Race and the new Gravity, are the best tools I have found for my students to learn and actually remember their words.
I have had great success with Quizlet. However, the paid teacher option does not seem to be worth it for me. I wish Quizlet had more features for teachers to track progress, record scores, and monitor student usage.
Overall, Quizlet is well worth the few minutes it takes to set up. It is easy to use and very intuitive for adults and students. With no other tool have my students retained their vocabulary words so well and for so long. I believe the gaming aspect encourages the long retention. In addition, Quizlet allows parents to help their children study and learn in a way that traditional study options do not.
