Just need to vent-- I have a class of about 20 seniors. In general, they are not bad kids---I have a few chatters, but in general, nice kids. I like them as people, but boy do they stink as students. About half the class is behind--they are not on track to graduate--don't have enough credits, haven't passed a single EOC test, things like that. I have habitual tardies, and several who skip or if they get permission to leave the room, they never get back. No matter what activities I do, the majority of them will not do them. It can be boring (read from a book and answer questions), or hands-on, multiple activities. They do not care at all. The only time they will do work is if I physically give them answers--i.e. we read a poem the other day together and they had a study guide-we went over it question by question--and half got the answers from the others who completed it. I do a bi-weekly Kahoot for vocab review--all they have to do is log in and participate to get 100, and I have 5 that won't even bother to do that. I've tried Breakouts--the response - this is too hard,I don't care. I have 98% failing in that class. And to make it worse, I have several students who are being enrolled in our online course at the same time, as a "backup"--sending the message they don't need to come to my class or do any work. So, I now come to class, provide an assignment, and offer to work with anyone who wants help. No one asks, even when I go to them and ask them. I know I shouldn't give up, but I don't see the point in putting in any effort to create assignments when they won't do them anyway.
