I need a good survey for the first week of school. Does anyone have a good one they can share? I teach 8th grade ELA, but any ideas are welcome.

Sorry to bug you on your board zoegirl. I am doing the middle school post card exchange that you joined. When you can email me your name, subject, school name and address, and grade. My email is msbarnwell@gmail.com

By the way, what type of survey are you talking about?

My email is darleneshead@anderson5.net. I teach 8th grade ELA at Lakeside Middle School in Anderson SC. The address is 315 Pearman Dairy Road, Anderson, SC 29625 Attn: Ms. Dee Dee Shead


I need an interest survey to use at the beginning of the year. Our district requires us to use information gathered in the survey in our Long Range Plans. It should include information about students feelings about various subjects, expectations for the class, etc. Thanks for any help you can give. I'm excited about the post card exchange

I'm excited too! Did you see that TX and CA have already joined!!

Anyway, I don't have a survey, but I did something similar just to get to know how my kids thought about school. You could set something up in survey form. Basically I asked what their favorite and least favorite subjects were, what they expected to get out of school, what they expect from me, their goals, and what their experience has been in school so far. My state doesn't require the surveys (maybe we should), but I like to know where they stand as far as being interested in learning. I would do questions in which their answers can be rated strongly agree, agree, not sure, disagree, strongly disagree... or something like that. Sorry if this doesn't help. I hope it does.

Yeah CA! I think my kids will love the post cards. Thanks for the advice. It does help. I'm in something of a funk and can't seem to get out of it. So...any help/advice is appreciated.

Here's a link from a fantastic document my board put out for grade 7/8 late last year. The page I'm linking to has a student survey as well as a summary sheet that you can use to create a class profile. It also has MI and learning styles surveys and summary sheets.

Thanks for the GREAT link for surveys. We are really trying to work on DI this year and your surveys will be a tremendous benefit!
I teach in a high poverty, low achievement school. We finally made AYP for the first time EVER last year! Now we are going to have to really work hard to keep progressing. Your link will be a definite help!

Wow! I just printed out a ton of stuff from your link. First of all I like the idea of a class inventory b/c any time I've done inventories in the past I've collected them and then thought, "Now what?" I also loved the MI checklist. I think the students will really like it. Finally, I found lots of ideas for reading and discussion (Say Something, It Says-I Say-So)

Thanks so much!

No problem! I had the pleasure of working with one of the DI coaches who was involved in putting together that resource last year. She's a fantastic teacher and someone I really admire. This is another of my favourite board resources. It's specifically for reading, and is linked to DRA, but you don't have to be using the DRA to get great ideas from it. http://www.lkdsb.net/program/element...DRA%202007.pdf

Thanks again! A lot of this ties in directly with the strategies that I try to teach my sixth graders, and takes in a step further. I will definitely use it.

WHOA! That was an awesome link to DRA stuff!! I'm moving from first to 7th/8th, and many of my students will be struggling. What great step by step strategies! I am familiar with most but this really helps me see it at another level!
THANKS!!!
