Re: Any tips on motivating unmotivated high school students?
I agree with everything that you said except the giving a kid someone else's grade. It's not a matter of being a "lawyer" on this board. It's about sharing ideas and listening to advice. If the right parent or administrator pushes this, you are going to be in big legal trouble and may even put your job and or career at risk. And if and when you look for another job, it's going to make another district leery of hiring a teacher who engages in this practice. I'm not attacking you, but I am telling you reality. Too many of us in this profession do things that are not in the best judgment and it really needs to stop.
