I will give a survey students on the second or third day of class, after they have had some time to get to know me. I will model my answers before asking them to share theirs.
This survey will allow me to be more culturally responsive, to be more aware of my students’ preferences, and to celebrate the talents of students who know more languages than English.
I also have two exit tickets to gauge student comprehension and take some feedback. These were adapted from Scott Benedict’s first days lesson plans on teachforjune.com
I hope these help you build those relationships on the first days!
