Doesn't want to work
I intern at a high school and one student refuses to do work. He sits in the back of the class and just sits quietly or is on his phone. When the teacher tells him to do his work or tries to help him, he ignores her. Any ideas on how to help the teacher?

I would suggest the teacher try to talk individually with the student. Establishing trust and forming a connection with the student may help them feel more present in class. This behavior could stem from all sorts of external and internal factors which is important to remember.

I would encourage the student to participate in the class discussion or have a conversation with the teacher about the next steps.

I would pull the student aside and see if there is any issues they have they want to talk about. If it is simply a behavioral issue, tell them that they gain nothing from flunking the class. Ultimately they will likely be reacting badly to a strong show of authority, so I would suggest showing that you are their friend and care about their success regardless of the approach you take.
