Students Don't Even Care or Try?

What do you do when students just don't seem to care about learning or don't even try to do work? When they have already failed the first 2 terms of the year but they are still exhibiting the same behaviors? What are some good ways to end the fight with students pulling out cell phones in class? My school has a district wide no cell phone policy and I have taken up phones, called parents, wrote students up but they still pull them out. I have my students working from bell to bell (well they SHOULD be working). I plan to start just assigning detention anytime I see a phone out, but will it stop?? There are just a few that seem to care about learning and actually do great on their assignments and actually turn work in consistently. Then the students get mad at me because they have a F, D, or C...as if it's my fault.

I won’t work harder than the kids.

They’re making their choices so they’ll enjoy the consequences. I don’t think there’s anything you can do.

Greyhound Girl - that’s what I tell my students all the time. And that the one doing the most work is doing the most learning, and I’ve already passed fifth grade!

I think there comes a point where you just stop addressing it and write up the referral.

I write referrals, call parents, etc but it doesn't help at all. I guess I just have to focus on the ones that ARE trying to learn.

Do they dislike detention?
