Hi all, I just got a job as an Impact Teacher for a high school that has given me a case load of about 25 students that are "at risk" of failing out of school. My job is to help them pass their classes(mainly science and math). I either go see them in their classes, take them out of their classes, or meet with them after school. I need help coming up with a good reward system so that my students get motivated to do their work. A lot of them are just lazy and don't care about doing homework, studying for tests, or just plain passing their classes. And many are preoccupied with socializing instead of doing their school work. :crosseyed How do I keep them wanting to do their work, or stay after school, or improve their study skills? P.S. I'm finding that the parents are just as hard to motivate as the children. For example, I was tutoring a student after school who got pulled out of the session by thier parent half way through to go shopping at the mall.
