Hello! I'm new, so excuse me if I'm using this incorrectly... I've had a student that previously has been A-B honor roll, still is, excluding my class. In my class, no matter what I've done, I cannot get one ounce of effort. I've talked to other teachers, they say in their classes they are engaged, paying attention, and turning in completed assignments that show effort. I get head down, texting, skipping class, doing other work, etc. I've took the work from other classes with promise to return it after next class, but the head just goes straight down. I tried to take the phone, but the student got extremely confrontational, yelling, screaming obscenities, to the point I feared for my safety. I've tried taking the chair to prevent sleeping, they just sit on the floor. I've tried having them walk somewhere and back, but they never show back up. The administrator can't get anything besides the silent treatment, confrontational body language, or head down. The counselor can't get anything besides head down. The time they became extremely aggressive over the phone, their peers and close friends report never seeing any behavior like that from them, ever.
