Rough Draft of Survey Questions

Hey all, to recap I will be creating a survey to use for my data collection.  This is the questions that I have thought to put into the survey.  I was wondering if anyone had any constructive criticism or any suggestions for good questions that would also fit with the theme of my survey.  I would greatly appreciate any input you guys can provide, thank you!  (Later on I will be sending out the survey to the class, so don't worry about answering at this point.)
