Interest Inventory

AP European History: 2015

Mr. Steven Kucklick
Welcome to AP European History! I am excited to spend this
year with you learning and growing as students. One of my many
goals this year is to get to know who you are as a person and as a
student, as well as building a strong community within the
classroom. To help facilitate this I have put together an Interest
Inventory which contains twenty five questions that ask things
about you. These questions may seem to be random, but I have
carefully selected them so that I can better get to know you. Your
responses are 100% confidential, I will be the only one looking at
them. Do not be afraid to speak truthfully when answering these
questions, I want to know the real you so that I can form my class
to fit your needs as a learner. If you have any questions feel free
to email me and I will get back to you. You will have a full week to
complete this survey from the time it is assigned, so please take
your time. I look forward to reading over all of these.
