I think getting to the bottom

I think getting to the bottom of why the kid is not buying in and brainstorming with the kid for solutions is probably the best strategy. Don;t let them get away with "It's dumb"- we know that can mean anything from "I'm bored" to "this is too hard for me" or "I have a personal and emotional reason I am unwilling to share." Is there an alternative you can construct with a resistant child to get them to meet the end goals but give them some independence to avoid whatever the pain point is for them? Not a quick or easy way to go, but a possibility....

When I was in school I snored a lot. Placed in all the "smart" classes because I scored high on IQ, I was supposed to be inspired I guess but all I remember is the boredom. In life as an adult I have found that projects are what motivate me and get me wanting to learn and grow. I am guessing this is true also for a lot of young gifted kids. A project looks like fun. Homework...not so much. I love this. Will tweet!

Greg,

I would first focus on the project design, and ensure there are voice and choice in the products to make sure students are able to access and show what they know.
Have you looked at these management strategies I wrote about much earlier?
