Start the school year getting to know how your students feel about having to learn a second language by using this survey to identify their attitudes and preconceived ideas. Next use the included worksheet to have them investigate the facts based upon research! A great get-to-know-you activity in the first week of class! Have the students work in groups to discuss what they thought and how that is different from what research says! You can continue with a follow-up activity such as having them write a plan of action for learning the language based upon what they discovered. Includes directions, survey, worksheet, and answer key.
