Unmotivated & Disengaged Learners: Dealing With Difficult Student Behaviors

February 10, 2017

Too many heads down on desks and not enough participation? Too many missing assignments and not enough time on task? In this chat. middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed how they motivate students in their own classroom and school wide systems that reinforce positive behavior. Teachers also shared how they handle apathetic, off task, and disruptive students. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about unmotivated and disengaged students in the ELA classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed how they motivate students in their own classroom and school wide systems that reinforce positive behavior. Teachers also shared how they handle apathetic, off task, and disruptive students.

Read through the chat below for ways to build relationships with students and no/low cost rewards. You'll get ideas about how to reengage disinterested learners. You'll also find ways to get students back on task without embarrassing them.

Hope you'll join us on Tuesday February 24th to discuss teaching vocabulary and grammar in the ELA classroom. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
