    Here is a question that I am always afraid to answer wrong:
    What are the most important things you want to know about your students?


    How would you answer this question?:help:

    The most important things I want to know about my students are their learning styles, learning abilities, and personal interests.

    I agree! Learning styles and, perhaps of equal importance, what motivates them. Teaching in a method that is most effective for the widest variety of students in your class is essential. In order to reach relunctant and resistant learners, motivation is so key.

    I agree. One thing you can also say (if it's older grades) is that you would take an inventory survey the first day/s that ask the kids lots of questions: age, brothers and sisters, fave tv show, favorite subject, worst subject, etc.. You can also say it is the first assessment to see what kids can spell and answer written questions.
