  Case: Working with ESE student that is uncooperative
An ESE student that has already gone into course recovery in the new semester does not have the best track record of completing work. This student is aware they need to be working on class work and other class related homework and projects. They will spend some class periods procrastinating on beginning work. When they do receive one-on-one assistance they try to divert their focus to looking in their book bag for a paper or they will fiddle with their iPad. If they need the use of the iPad they will stretch time by saying the link doesn't work, or they can't find the location of something. Instruction are given clearly and on multi occasions. How can this this student be helped to stay on task and work productively.
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
When I have worked with students like this, creating a reward system that they see as valuable has helped me work with them. For instance, I have students in ESE who also use iPads and will refuse to do their work during class time. When this occurs, the main teacher of the classroom as well as the aids have told the student, "okay, no more iPad". Creating this system took time for the student to understand because at first the results on the student's end was that they would finish the work, not put any effort into it then expect the iPad back. Eventually, it developed into them actually putting in the work because they knew that was the only way of getting the iPad back. In regards to them fiddling or looking for paper in their bag, I have found that working beside them has helped my students. I have had students take out each item in their bag, sort what they have and start to work. This way it gets to the point, all of the items in their bag go onto their desk and go back into their bag when not needed and usually they will find the correct item they are looking for in a quicker amount of time than if you left them to do it on their own.

Comments: I really like this solution. I think it is important to give students positive reinforcement in the classroom. The only thing I would let these students know is that sometimes they will not receive rewards for simple tasks they have to do in the real world.

Comments: Taking away the reward not only when they aren't doing the work in general or if they are obviously not putting effort is smart to have them have an incentive to work hard to get their reward.

Comments: I think that this is beneficial in that it gives the student the redirection onto another task and allows them to develop an understanding of what they should be working on rather than their games or technology.
