Who are YOU? Survey request

At the beginning of every semester, I have my students fill out an information sheet where I gather some basic background, like their major, hometown, other econ courses, personal interests, etc. I feel like I can be more effective if I know something about who they all are. Here on the blog, I have sometimes struggled as I write posts because I don't really have a good idea of who is reading what I write. I mean, I have a general idea - I assume you all are somehow interested in economics and/or teaching (well, aside from my mom :-)) - but that's about all I really know. It finally dawned on me that I should just ask (duh!). So, if you are a regular reader, will you please complete this short survey? By 'short', I mean it should take you about five minutes. I figured summer would be a good time to do this but I know that even for those few minutes, there are opportunity costs and some of you may need an extra incentive, so everyone who responds by July 31 will be entered in a drawing for a free copy of the International Handbook on Teaching and Learning Economics. I'd really appreciate your feedback. Thank you, and thank you reading!

p.s. If you aren't familiar with Google Forms, they are super-cool! This is the first time I've used them but can see lots of ways I might use them for classes. I'll likely post about that soon...
