I've noticed in education the push to provide or sometimes require intervention programs for students who struggle in the classroom. These students struggling in math or language arts can sometimes b

Here are some resources for interest surveys, learning styles surveys, multiple intelligences survey, and learning profile inventory.

            Interest survey- http://www.union.k12.sc.us/ems/Teachers-Forms--Student%20Interest%20Survey.htm
This survey asks questions about books, life experiences, favorite things, enjoyed pastimes, and relationships with others. The questions asked are thought provoking and must be answered with more than a “yes” or “no”.  One thing that I like about this survey in particular is that the instructions state that students can skip an answer if they feel uncomfortable about it.
          
            Learning styles survey- http://www.educationplanner.org/students/self-assessments/learning-styles-quiz.shtml
. The survey of learning is set up much like a survey found on social media. The questions put the test taker in different scenarios. Some are academic; others are not. The fact that the questions are broad helps paint a picture of the whole learner.
            Multiple intelligences survey- http://schoolofeducators.com/tag/multiple-intelligence-test-printable
This survey is long, but gives an accurate idea of which intelligence(s) a student has. The survey has 70 questions and can be adapted to fit many grade levels.
 
            Learning profile inventory- http://firstday.wikispaces.com/General
This survey is located half way down the page. It requires students to draw a picture of themselves, list their favorite things, qualities of a good teacher, and basic demographic, and goals. Although this was created by a math teacher, I believe that any middle or high school teach can adapt this survey for their classroom. This would be an excellent activity for the first day of class.
Student Interest Survey Name. Please answer these questions to the best of your ability. You may skip answers you find to be uncomfortable. 1. What is your favorite book from childhood? 2. What is the farthest point you've traveled away from home? 3. What is a recent movie you enjoyed, ...

Technology Integration Resources for Teachers: Differentiated Instruction (http://websites.pdesas.org/fiedlerk/2009/12/8/2168/page.aspx) is a resource for educators who want to differentiate instruction the classroom using technology. The site offers information on DI, behavior management, Project Based Learning. It also offers ways to implement technology throughout many subjects. These resources are designed to extend the learning in the classroom through DI and technology. The tools are well organized on the site, and the summaries of each site are helpful. The quantity of technological resources available on this site will be sure to pique the interest of students in the classroom. The cool factor associated with these tools will provide students with motivation to learn. Tomlinson talks about teaching students to judge what they learn and to focus teaching overall understanding through lessons (Laureate Education, 2009). Technology resources in the website will promote understanding and engagement.

Renee,
I think any tool can be modified for little ones. With some exploration of the site I think you can find something that fits :)

Hi all,
Any ideas about this week's chat? I am new to Google+. Does anyone know if we can use the "Hangout" to the right as a chat?
