High School CT
My CT teaches two high school social/personal classes and the rest of the day she is in gen. ed. classes helping her ESE students. She rarely gives her students assignments in these classes, so when I have to teach they get annoyed because they know I am going to ask them to complete some work. What do I do to change their attitudes towards me?

Maybe try to find some engaging activities for them that are helping them learn while requiring less "work." Some students learn best through hands on activities. Also it might be helpful to find some sort of reward system for the students to help motivate them.

I think it is a great idea to use more hands-on activities rather than having students doing worksheets or paper and pencil activities.

Yes, hands on or creating an activity that is some what created towards your students can be very beneficial.

I like the idea of making lessons more engaging and interesting, with less work. As long as students are getting the major content, the standards and learning goal should be met. Learning games are a great way to incorporate content, especially since students can be so competitive.

Maybe try some more hands on activities and assessments! Its hard to get students to do physical classwork when they are so used to it another way. Maybe even have some fun, online assessments for them to try.

I would try activities that isn't necessary busy work. I would try to build a rapport with them before giving them work, try activities that is interesting to them and have group discussions. You don't always have to give them work in order to assess them.

Try to talk to your CT about this one. Also, explain to the students that you are two different teachers. She has different expectations than you do but they need to respect you in the same way they would her, or there are going to be some consequences.

I think this is the best solution. Talking to your CT and making her aware of the situation would be best.

I have the same problem as you. I've learned that just by talking to them and explaining that they are doing me a favor by helping me learn to teach and they learn something in the process. I also make sure that the lessons are engaging and hands on. I also try to center my lessons on their assignments from other classes so that they feel like it's not just busy work.

I would approach them by saying that many teachers have different teaching styles. If you give them a reason as to why you do things, they will appreciate it more. Communicate with them and maybe find an assessment or work that interests them. Not every end product of a lesson has to be the same. Depending on the student, you can alter the assessment that would be more geared toward their learning style.

Getting the students to understand that you working with them and teaching them is to help you as a future teacher, may help curb some of the problems that you are facing. Giving them that ownership, may adjust their outlook on what you are asking them to do; which may get them more engaged. Also try to make the lessons fun, exciting and relevant to things that they would want to learn about. By doing that, they may begin to enjoy your presence and your time in the class may be a bit easier.

Maybe have them work on a classroom project together that helps out people in need or that makes a difference in the environment. An assignment like this can incorporate many different subjects and is engaging!

I believe if you create an engaging activities or hands on activities, the students will be more willing to give you a more positive attitude on your assignments. Especially with ESE students, they need to be moving and active because their brains does not stay focus just working on paper assignments and staying in the classroom all day. Also have them work on the assignments as a pair or in groups, have them interact with their peers.

You can look into disguised learning or implement a constructivist approach. A lot of students cannot stand worksheets. Try to avoid them. Instead, give them broad tasks that they must work together to figure out. This is especially helpful in math.

Learn the students. See what they like an incorporate them into your lessons. Included some brain breaks so they are able to walk around and talk.
