This survey is called the "Absolutely Not, Absolutely, Maybe, Sure Survey". The kids automatically realize that I'm not going to MAKE them do anything. I understand that they are people with feelings, different backgrounds and emotions. I would never make a student read out loud if it's their biggest fear. I would never make a student act in front of the class if it's their biggest fear. This survey allows me to immediately get information about these fears - day one. Keep it near and ready for quick reference.
