Grand prize winners
And now — drumroll, please — we’re excited to announce the three incredible teachers who’ve won our top prize of $1,000 for them and their classrooms:
🏆 Erik Nelson
Erik has been teaching ESL for over 30 years in pretty much every capacity you could think of: university professor, secondary and primary education, and for a time as the founder of his own language school! He tells us, "For me, it's a passion, and I couldn't fathom doing anything else."
After using Quizlet for over 5 years, his number one Quizlet tip: "You know how we say a "Picture is worth a thousand words"? Well, keep that in mind when making your flashcards. Whenever possible add context to what you are trying to teach: pictures, sounds, example sentences, etc."
🏆 Sara Allsup
Sara is a life science (Biology and Physiology) teacher at a title one school in San Diego, California. She's been teaching for fourteen years and loves her job. She especially enjoys mixing hands-on teaching with technology use, and finds it's helpful that Quizlet allows her students to interact with the material in a variety of ways.
Her Quizlet tip: "Use it consistently, but in combination with other review activities and assign or give incentives for students to play individual games (matching, Gravity) on their own. Make it a competition to get the highest score or match in the fastest time."
🏆 Sheri Freestone-Swart
Sheri teaches 9th and 10th grade French at Corning-Painted Post High School in Corning, NY. This is her 5th year of teaching — and using Quizlet — and she loves what she does. Her best Quizlet advice? "I use Quizlet Live as a Bell Ringer to review the vocabulary that we have learned. [I also] use pictures whenever possible. I think having a visual aid really helps students retain the information."
A huge thank you to everyone who played! Here at the Quizlet office, we’ve loved seeing the engagement, collaboration and incredible learning you’ve all brought to Quizlet Live. Have a wonderful start to the new year and learn on!
