I want to know what motivates my students. What their interests are, activities that excite them, and where their mind freely roams when not in school. I also need to know how they feel about school. Do they feel it is a safe environment, do they like coming each day, what about school do they like/dislike? The third thing I would need to know are my students academic strengths and weaknesses. These three things will allow me to look at the student as an individual and plan differentiated lessons.
