The first half of the year is nearly complete, but have you checked in with your students through any other means than a test? Here’s why you should use surveys to empower students and enhance their success.


Fall is here and the holidays are quickly approaching. It’s likely you (and your students) are feeling exhausted and ready for a brain break. While the learning simply cannot pause until 2019, we encourage you to take a moment to allow your students to stretch themselves mentally — but differently than you might expect.

As 21st-century educators, we’re bombarded with the idea of reflection. While open-ended prompts might enable students to dig deeper, this introspective activity may not be a practical approach for a teacher looking to create positive change in the classroom.

Here’s what might help:

  1. Online surveys.

  2. Google forms.

  3. Emoji integration.

  4. Think outside the box.


When we provide students with a safe space for feedback and reflection, we level the playing field and foster positive relationships for our learners.

What might you ask students in your upcoming survey? Leave a comment below to help us compile a stellar list.
