Working with Challenging Students


Most all teachers have had the experience of being the one who made a difference in the life of a student–and every student deserves to have such an adult in their lives.

There is no single intervention or trick to magically change a challenging student into a self-regulating and motivated participant. What does work is creating settings in which students are known, explicitly prompted and supported and praised, and given the academic and social tools to thrive. The experience of working with challenging students as they learn to thrive is one of the richest rewards of working in schools. Let’s get that experience more often.
