  Case: Student Refuses to Speak English
Mrs. Richards has a student who has an intermediate level of English proficiency. Despite that fact, the student refuses to do any work and refuses to speak English to her or his classmates. She knows that he can do better, but he seems to be using his ESL status as a crutch.
How should she motivate this student to speak English and do his language arts work?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
Tangible rewards are sometimes the only resource that will get a response from students. Having a personal reward for completed assignments might motivate the student to complete his tasks. I saw a teacher using tootsie rolls " your on a roll" as a positive reinforcement.
The suggested solution is respectful of the individual (student) No
The suggested solution is relevant to the case No
The suggested solution is reasonable (easy) for the teacher to implement No
The suggested solution is likely to solve the problem/issue No
The suggested solution is original No
Comments: I think this would only make the child speak in English only when he or she wants to, even with incentives. I don't think the incentives would help.
