Ok, this post is about 2% question and about 98% venting frustration. I'm sure it's like this at many high schools, but at ours we have a lot of trouble with students not bothering to do homework. The administration tells us to assign them mandatory tutoring to make up assignments. If they don't go to tutoring, we give them an office referral. Sounds great. I teach six classes, and I usually have about ten zeros per class. So, I write up all my mandatory tutoring slips (an immense amount of paper work) and give them to the kids. Only a few of them actually go to tutoring, so I write the office referrals (more paperwork). The office sends them back saying they won't take any action until I call the parents first. I don't have time to call sixty parents! Ok, here' the question. Anyone have any good ways to get teenagers to do their homework besides calling all their parents?
