I have been working at a public high school for over ten years. Though I always teach students of the seventh grade.I never feel tired of that. Over the first few weeks of every school year, my most important job is getting to know well about those little strangers in my class-discovering their personal wishes and learning about their former study and life experiences. For me this getting- to-know-you process is a very important part of my teaching, and I have developed many ways to"research"my students,including parent questionnaires(向卷)and students’ letters of self- introduction.
1 like to give out parent questionnaires. These questionnaires are useful for me to learn about my students' lives at home. From these questionnaires,I learn much about my students as well as their parents.
Another way to"research" my students is to read their letters of self-introduction, l always ask each student to write me a letter as the first piece of homework. They need to tell me all about themselves.I share with them my letter of self-introduction as an example. And 1 make sure my students know that ! really want to learn about them so that I can help them in the best way.
These getting-to-know-you activities, which last a whole year. are just the beginning of a long process for me to know about my students. I never take the first impressions as the final ones. Instead,I keep "researching"my students during the rest of the year in all possible ways.
