First Days of School // Student Interest Survey. I like this concept, though I would add more E/LA-based questions -- including genre based questions, process based questions, self assessment/ability based questions, etc.
A quick survey to get to know your students. Use it at the beginning of the school year, after breaks, or open house and meet the teacher nights. If you get to meet your students before the next school year, this would be helpful too!
*pg 59 "How do you like to learn" survey for your class to be able to tailor your teaching to your students needs. Having an understanding of the classroom dynamics. Understanding your students and they way they learn on a more personal level.
