LOVE them. Once you do that, LOVE them some more. You might be surprised as to how they will respond. Find out what they are interested in, what sports they play. Going to watch them play a game will do a ton for you. Each student will be different. If you can find a way to connect with them outside of what you do in the classroom, it will help tremendously. After moving to a very low SES school, I really started to understand that I had no idea as to what some of these kids go through on a day to day basis. The more I put effort into trying to understand that, the better I became at reaching those kids. You can discipline with understanding. Best of luck!
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.
