In order to motivate our students, we need to know what they think, what they believe, and the ideas they come to the classroom with. The best time to do this is at the beginning of the semester. We have been exploring different ways to do this; and the easiest way to do this is to apply a survey.

Since the beginning of our course we have been studying the formation of our students. We know that we need to understand the way they think in order to hep them learn. The saying “I teach, therefore, you learn.” does not work.
See the video, I teach, therefore, you learn.

In order to form an instrument which is adaptable to your students’ needs, you have read three different short instruments which asks students questions about what how they learn language. Please write three of your favorites on the word document 2013.instrument at Google Docs to share your favorites. From your favorites we can write an instrument for CETIS 120.

If someone has already written in your favorite, then just add your name to the name box. Do not write the sentences again.
