    Rhetoric Literary Terms

    I've never taught year 2 literature before. Have any of you already made flashcards for all the literary terms, to help save these busy students some time?

    Please advise.

    I have not. In year 1, my daughter had no trouble making the cards a few at a time, and I felt sure that writing them out herself was better than just reading them. I encouraged her to use her own words when appropriate.

    I advise against you making the cards because the very act of making a flash card is part of the learning process. Back when I studied foreign language I found that I learned some terms just by making the cards. Don't deprive your students of this valuable activity.

    We use Quizlet for all the flashcards. Either my rhetoric student enters them in or I do. She studies the cards during the week (using games and learning quizzes) and then there is a nice feature for testing. I usually merge the weeks each week so she reviews all the terms each week. (My daughter's schedule is full so sometimes it is better for me to enter the terms. I found that when she actually wrote the terms out herself on index cards she was doing a lot of shorthand which wasn't helpful.)
