The Nonparticipator

Behavior: Specific attitudes and actions of this child at home and/or at school.

  • Isn't learning.

  • Falls farther behind in class work every day.

  • Displays varying degrees of boredom and indifference. These are the first signs of nonparticipation.

  • Fails to bring materials to class or to turn in assignments; becomes preoccupied with other interests. These may be the first overt clues.

  • By and large, just sits in class and does nothing.

  • Wants attention; actually hopes for teacher attention.

  • Suffers from three personal voids: safety, esteem, and self-actualization.
