What should i have done different?
Can someone tell me what to do with this kind of situation? The students that have been thrown into Automotive and they don’t want anything to do with it. I have tried a lot of different things to get them interested but it doesn’t seem to work. I don’t get a lot of students that don’t like Automotive but when I do, I do and they will let me know quickly. At the beginning of every semester I have the new students write down why they chose Automotive and I usually get a lot of good reasons. But there are those few that say, “I didn’t pick this class, they just threw me in here, I don’t like getting dirty and I feel I shouldn’t have to work at school.” I actually had one student tell me this and I didn’t know what to say. Well long story short, I tried my best to get this student interested, but I failed and so did the student. Unfortunately he didn’t pass my class; he just stood around and did nothing. I called his parents to let them know, but that didn’t help. Now I feel that was a waste of a semester for the student and he should have been placed into something else. What could I have done better?
