I teach 8th grade history..... I have one student who has missed probably half of the school days in this past 9 weeks. Most recently, my students have be working on a little Project based learning where they take on the role of a teacher and teach an assigned topic to the class. This particular student has missed ALL of this week and therefore missed ALL of the project. I am not even sure if he will come to school today. Any suggestions on what to do for this kid? I should note that when this student is here he does EVERYTHING he can to try and get out of doing his work. He manipulates teachers and tries to leave class frequently for whatever reason he can come up with... (We have recently put a stop to this but still) He also missed my last PBL activity... where I exempted him since he literally showed up to school on presentation day. Im a new teacher so I'm just lost as to what to do for this student - any advice suggestions appreciated.
