Re: Inner City
Do you honestly think I haven't done that? What an unhelpful response.
And I don't like to remove kids just because they are difficult. I like to try and help if possible. Removing can be the easy way out for some teachers. The math and ELA teachers don't have that option.
Be a teacher? Clear communication, reach out to them, show them empathy, consequences on repeat offenders... removal from the program if they don't comply. This is part of your job.
How do you deal with students who just don't "get it"? Simple things like be quiet or get to class on time. Showing up.
I feel sad for these kids, their lives are not headed in the right direction.
