Students could make flash cards from the questions and answers from their Review Self-Tests and/or Vocabulary Self-Quizzes. Students should write the question on a side and on the other side write the answer(s).
  1. Using flash cards, a student would be attempting to remember the concept from scratch rather than simply staring at the passage in a textbook/guided notes or recognizing it on a multiple-choice quiz.
  2. When students reveal the answer side of a flashcard to assess their correctness, they are essentially asking themselves “How did my answer compare to this correct answer?” and “How well did I know (or not know) it?”
  3. Because flashcards exist loosely, rather than tied to a book or notes, students are able to separate them into piles based on whether (or how often) the student needs to study them again.
