Getting to know your students is tough, especially in secondary where you have almost 200 of them!
This survey asks some "just personal enough" questions that can help you gain insight into your students early on. It's a great activity for the first day, especially when integrated into a set of stations. Students are instructed to answer half the questions, leaving them free to choose how personal they would like to get. This choice element is built in to help your students feel comfortable letting you know a little bit about themselves without having to divulge information they are not comfortable sharing.
This file is fully editable, so if you have a question you really want to ask, add it right in! Have a great first day!
