  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!)
Sometimes students feel as though they are letting go of their culture if they cease speaking their native language. Mrs. Richards might try working out a deal with the student to where if he completes his assignments in English, she will let him teach her his native language. By showing the student that she has no negative feelings toward his native language, maybe he will begin to learn that she simply needs his work in English in order to assess it.

Comments: This is the solution I would choose if I was in this situation. Culture is extremely precious to individuals and showing the student that you care enough to learn aspects of their language can make a change.
