It has happened again! I have a couple of deadbeat "students" who sit in class and literally do nothing. It's also a reason I'm sensitive to any opinion that these kinds of kids can be reached or that you should expend any energy on them. Anyway, I looked up their grades, assuming that they were brain dead in their other classes too and was very dissappointed to see that while yes, they were failing or getting Ds in a couple of other classes other than my art class, they had Bs and Cs, or sometimes even As in other classes. What should I make of this? It can only be one of two things, or a combination: a) They are choosing to make an effort in other classes and purposely being useless in mine b) Their other classes are super-easy Do any of you experience this? Your subject doesn't have to be art.
