This is a perfect back to school, get-to-know-you survey for all secondary students! It covers everything from the basics (name, birthday, etc.) to more specific details (hobbies, favorite things, etc.) to their preferences as a learner.
I love this survey because it allows me to get to know my students as a human being first, and then as a student. By showing interest in who they are as individuals, I start the year off right by developing genuine, positive relationships with my students that last throughout the year.
This survey gives me valuable insight into who they are as learners as well! The more I understand them academically, the more I can adjust my lessons to challenge them and meet their needs.
Students can fill this out as they're chatting with friends they haven't seen all summer, for homework, or as a silent activity within the first few days of school, And you can use it to your advantage all year!
