It is incredibly helpful as a teacher to know how your students think about their learning. How do they feel about learning new material? Do they think that they are in charge of their learning, or is it something that is out of their control? Are some people simply just smarter than others? Give your students this simple and straightforward survey in order to see what they think. Some teachers may choose to give the survey at the beginning of the year in order to get to know their students. You may even decide to give the survey at several points during the school year in order to determine if students are changing the way they think about the learning process.
