This is a survey that I give to my students at the beginning of the school year. I use it in English Language Arts, but it could be edited and adapted to any subject. This helps me get to know my students interests in reading and writing. Use however you like, but I use this in an interview format. I make students partner-up with someone else and interview the person while filling in this sheet. I then make them choose three things from the list and introduce their partner to the whole class.
