This year, the team of teachers that I am on is struggling with the same 5-6 students in terms of getting them to complete any class work and homework. Some of these students have not handed in a single piece of work to any of us since the beginning of the year. Emails and phone calls to parents, trips to the office, detentions, Saturday school, modification of assignments, direct instruction on what to do, etc has all proven ineffective. We are attempting to devise a team incentive that will motivate students to complete work. In my own classroom, I have given out homework passes and have rewarded positive behavior, but the same group of students as aforementioned have not been responsive to any incentives that the other teachers and I have given. If homework passes, other rewards for positive behavior, emails, phone calls, detentions, one-on-one conferences, Saturday school, modifications, clear instructions, and trips to the office have not worked, what could we do to make these students start being more active learners?
