This comprehensive first day survey can be administered at any time during the first few weeks of school as a way to learn more about your students, to assess their reading and writing skills, or to introduce English language learners to the simple present and simple past tenses.
The survey includes short answer questions in the following categories:
- About You
It also includes three longer response questions about academic and personal success.
This survey will help you paint a clearer picture of your students' lives both in school and outside of school so that you can plan lessons with your particular students' needs in mind. Perhaps one of your students works full time in addition to attending school. Perhaps another is responsible for caring for younger siblings. Maybe a student has no access to technology. Maybe another lives with an aunt or uncle. This survey asks students a variety of questions about their lives, their likes, their dislikes, and their learning preferences. Each question is phrased in a sensitive and caring manner.
This survey comes as a .docx file for easy customization. If you like the survey as it is, simply add your header and print! If you wish, you can add or modify questions.
