Easy student-centered needs analysis

Starting with a new group?

Need to know where to go?

Here is an easy way to instantly generate a visual image of students' perceptions of their own needs and class preferences, for discussion and follow-up.

Write up the columns, give them each a marker and let them go.

Once the results are up, have students come up with a list of recommendations for your class.

Be sure to take a photo or otherwise record the results to refer to at later stages!

This was a small group, just 4 students, but you can get the same and even more interesting effect with a larger class!


Is there anything you would add?
