What do you do with the smart kid who just doesn't care? I have this kid who's really very bright. He usually scores in the top two or three on exams and quizzes and is almost always the first one done with in class assignments. My problem with him is that he just doesn't care enough to do ANY work outside of class. He has never turned in a homework assignment or a project and as a result is recieving a D in my class. I have talked to him, I have talked to his mom (who cares even less than her son...the joys of inner city schools), but I just can't seem to find the magic button with this kid. Any ideas?
