  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!)
He could be in a situation where his native language is mostly spoken at home, so that's what he feels most comfortable with. She should include things from the students native country of origin for him to feel included.
The suggested solution is respectful of the individual (student) Yes
The suggested solution is relevant to the case Yes
The suggested solution is reasonable (easy) for the teacher to implement Yes

Comments: Including something from the child's culture would be something that would be helpful in this circumstance.
