Any advice on "dead-eyed" kids?(High school)
Date: August 28, 2013
So, I'm going into my third year of teaching. My "Come one, come all" choir is rather sizeable, but there is a large portion of kids each year who show up and it's clear from the second they're in, that they don't want to be there. They have shut down on the first day, and from then on, it becomes more about managing their behaviour, which takes up rehearsal time. I understand that there are kids you can't save, though I know I've tried.
In your experiences, have you ever found a management technique that breaks them of their jaded extremism and opens them up to the cool stuff that's happening around them? Thanks guys.
