  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!)
The teacher should evaluate his behaviors, see what is preventing him from interacting, and participating in class assignments. Usually the way a student perceives themselves in class reflects what's happening outside of class.

Comments: I like that this emphasizes looking at the student's background and other behaviors rather than simply academic performance and how they 'seem' in the classroom.
