One of the keys to success in any classroom is knowing your students. Knowing how they learn, what motivates them, and their interests are important for you to be aware of as a teacher. This survey is created for teachers to get to know their students in math class during the beginning of the exciting new school year.
This survey is intended for grades six through twelve. In it, students will write about their interests, how they learn, how they feel about math, and what you can do as a teacher to help them be successful. There is also a section where students may ask you questions if they have any. Students are guided through a series of questions that provide you with invaluable information. This survey will surely facilitate differentiation in your classroom, allow you to plan motivating lessons, and start a student-teacher relationship right from the beginning of the school year.
This survey is 4 pages long. It includes the most important questions that will allow you to get to know your students in order for you all to work together to create a successful school year in math class. It is a great way to start off the school year. It lets your students know that you care about them, and it lets them know that they will have a say in what they learn and how they learn it.
This survey is mainly a "writing" survey, thus students will need some time to write their answers. If you want to make this an in-class task during the beginning of the school year, plan on at least 10 or 15 minutes. This would also be a great task to send home during the first week of school.
