Along with the HOW do you want to learn, would it be helpful to ask who do you want to learn it from - what do you want to learn and how do you imagine that happening? I think I would be curious to know who my students saw as teachers.

Great questionnaire! I am currently getting my masters in special education and I love reading different beginning of the year activities to use with students! I feel that it would be great to turn in questionnaire into a game of some sort once completed. In my experience, I feel students enjoy these questionnaires more when they have the chance to compare or share with their classmates. Also, I find it helpful to ask the students how they want to learn? What do you want to make sure the teacher includes when teaching? I have found that students are able to provide you with information on their best learning style. This is very important when differentiating instruction for your students.
