I am having a major problem with nearly every student in two of my classes. One class is 7th grade, and the other class is 8th grade. I teach Language Arts. The students in these classes refuse to be quiet when I tell them to. They talk out of turn, and most of them will talk back. We don't have detention in our school so that wouldn't work. I have threatened them with pop quizzes, they have taken them and failed them, and the majority of them have expressed to me that they don't care at all. These are a tough group of kids, and it is hard to scare them. They don't care about grades, going to in school suspension, or getting suspended. They sit in class and refuse to do work because they say that they know they can go to summer school. I just know something can be done to get these students' attention. I really need help! Please help!
