      Tch Laureate Sean McComb uses focus groups, in addition to surveys. See his recently launched video: https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/feedback-from-students

        Thanks Michael, great ideas. I think the surveymonkey might be a fun way to do it. I have done a hard copy. I teach grade 1/2 so any ideas as to what to ask?

          Thanks Paul, I think I have seen this one but it was with older children. I will have another look. I teach grade 1/2 children.

            I didn't realize that the survey was for 1st and/or 2nd graders. I would keep the survey questions simple like
            "did you like...?" and keep their responses to a yes or no type thing. Have you also recorded yourself on video? I know that can be nerve wracking sometimes if you got the equipment or get input from a colleague who doesn't have to stay the entire time.

              Have you heard of "Plus/Delta?" For older kids, you ask for the pluses - what went well, what should I continue to do in the future. For the delta, no negatives, but suggestions on how to make it better next time. For little ones, I think you can still use the concept, but will need to reword it. For example: What did you like? What helped you learn? And: Can you think of a way to make it better? I'm high school, so all you elementary folks can come up with your own appropriate wording!
