I'm working with some difficult, unmotivated kids under some unusual circumstances, and I could use some advice. I teach in a yeshiva (all-boys, Jewish day-school) where we cannot assign homework in secular classes. All reading, writing, etc. must be done in our 45 minute hour. I like to do "round robin" reading where we each take turns with a paragraph, but so far, I'm having difficulty in at least two areas. 1. How to keep the kids who are not reading at any given time engaged or even just paying attention 2. What to do with kids who won't read the text "straight." Don't get me wrong, I would love it if they would use some inflection, but instead some kids intentionally mispronounce words, play games with tone, volume etc all the for the purpose of turning the text into nonsense, being a clown, or simply being disruptive. How do I deal with such students? Finally, is round-robin reading simply a bad idea? Maybe I should just have them read silently? But then how can I get a sense of their fluency? Please advise!
