Tool: Survey Monkey
Survey Monkey is an online tool for creating surveys, and so much more! The questions can be multiple choice, essay, text, or even just an image you upload. Besides surveys, then, you can use this tool for home discussions, registrations, testing, collaborative planning, and more. Imagine a 7th grader sitting at home with Mom and Dad, going to the discussion tool you created, and viewing a picture of Jesus of Nazareth. The task would be to list as many ways their household exhibited qualities they would imagine of Jesus in an essay box. After submitting the list, the catechist will compile the work of students to use as a discussion starter at the next learning session.

If you believe that you can now create a discussion tool that you and others can use to submit text – click the “Like” button. Once you create a “survey” to engage your students at home, come back and tell us about it. We’d love to hear from you.
