We've all been there. It's the end of the year, and students come into your classroom in droves. They all bashfully ask you the same question: "Will you write me a recommendation letter?"
Writing recommendation letters can be an easy or painstaking process, depending on the student. If it's a student you have a close relationship with, the words may flow freely, but if it's a student you don't know so well (or worse, a student you haven't spoken to in years), recalling their specific areas of success in your class can be tricky.
That's where this questionnaire comes in. Students answer 10 reflective questions about their academic successes, failures, extracurricular activities, and more in order to make your job easier when you sit down to write the rec letter.
Let students do the heavy lifting by filling out this handy letter of recommendation questionnaire!
