How Do You Help a Student Who Seems to Have Given Up?

Do you ever feel like you want to give up on a student, especially when a student seems to give up or no longer cares about his or her progress in class?

As an educator, I care about my students – all of them. Even the online students who challenge me and occasionally cause me to walk away from my laptop for a short break. I believe it originate from my belief in the potential that every student has an ability to learn, even if students do not learn at the same pace or comprehend the course topics in the same manner. Most of the classes I have taught were online, and I have enjoyed teaching in a virtual learning environment – even though it was challenging at first when I could not see the students like I could when I was teaching in a traditional classroom. Over time I developed an ability to tell when students are engaged in the class and when students are slowly starting to disengage. I know some form of outreach is needed when students are struggling, to help re-engage them back in the class.
