I asked my students: "What are you currently doing for stress relief?"
Most had really great, healthy things they are doing. I love how some of my students were vague about what they are doing and some were very specific. One wise student started by saying, "I've been trying to tell myself that I'm doing my best and I'm only human." But some said, "Nothing. I am very stressed." Or, "I'm really just upset a lot." And one student used this space to say: "I'm currently struggling to find a way. I would love to hear our classmate's responses."
And so, I decided to compile a list of my students' responses.

Do you give your students a questionnaire at the beginning of the school year? I've been giving one every year since I started teaching but it changes from year to year. Some questions I ask to gather information I need about my students, some are to get to know my students a little bit, and some are just for fun. The past couple of years, some of the questions I ask are to gather data that I then use in aggregate in my AP Statistics class activities.
Here are some of the things I've been asking my students...

As a way to review for the AP Stats exam, I have my students do a series of power quizzes* (5 multiple choice questions) in the weeks leading up the exam date (either individually or in groups). This is common practice in my department. A colleague of mine also does a final power quiz the day before the AP exam. I loved the idea so much that I decided to use this inspiration to come up with my own final power quiz for my AP Stats students.
