I love getting to know my students and learning about each of them. Since my first year teaching (I am going into my 10th!) I have used a student questionnaire to learn as much basic information about each student as possible. I teach in a diverse community and feel it is important to understand as much as possible about each one as I enter relationships with them. I also reference these questionnaires all year long as I chose topics for discussions, grouping students, making seating charts, organizing field trips, calling home, etc. This questionnaire is set up so that the students can look at their answers and identify their strengths in learning and self-expression, which I think is awesome! I hope you and your students agree....enjoy!
