- Nov 10, 2013I agree. It's hard, I teach a lot of freshman who are not motivated at a Catholic school on Chicago's south side. I found that allowing them to choose their topic (sports) they seem to get more motivated.

I have a rotating art class that lasts 9 weeks, which all students must take. This semester the classes are all boys. The most challenging class is the 8th grade boys, over 25 in each class. They are talkative and loud, and all but a few are not interested in art. Most put very liittle effort into their artwork. It makes for a very disruptive environment. Has anyone had such a situation? Any suggestions on how to get a bunch of 8th grade boys interested in art?
