When problem students meet a teacher with a plan everyone can have a happy outcome...
The atmosphere in the classroom was toxic. It was a mixture of regular students, special needs students and a couple of ‘professional troublemakers’ that wore ankle bracelets. But it wasn’t the ‘ankle bracelet students’ that were causing the problem... There were three specific students in the ‘center of the storm’. “Yes ... These three kids have been a problem since the beginning of the year... we might need to have them take summer school,” said the Vice Principal when I asked him why these particular kids were having such a hard time. But you see, this was not my first teaching position. And I wasn’t going to let that happen... I implemented the ‘No Failings Students’ teaching method in this class. And sure, there were some objections at first, but as the weeks went by, there was less fighting... Fewer airplanes whizzing by.
And less failing grades.
But what made the biggest impact was that the atmosphere in the classroom changed completely. It wasn’t just these three kids that were ‘saved’, it was the entire class.
