Are you not sure where to start with new students this year? This is a student interest inventory best suited for a middle school ELA class. A great way to learn about each student's interests, weaknesses, strengths, favorite projects, etc. in previous years, & more! All ELA topics including: reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, spelling, and other general get to know you and technology use questions. This can be used in preparation for teaching and setting up lessons for the school year, & specific and/or individual student needs.

You can have them complete this in their notebooks, as a handout to turn in, or google doc! This is a word document that is editable for your classroom needs! There is also a link available with purchase for the google document!
