An oldy but such a goody.
When it comes to memorizing hard facts for subjects like History and English, elements of the periodic table, your teen doesnt need anything better than good ol fashioned flash cards.
Nothing is as good a substitute really, because its very well to think you remember something when youre reading over your notes, but this isnt a true test of your memory.
But with flash cards theres no oh yes I know that. You either know the answer or you dont.
Theyre also a great tool to utilise throughout the semester. If you can help your teen make some now, they can practice memorizing the facts they need to know every week until their exams and add to them as the term progresses , and as we all know, practice makes perfect.
