How Can We Best Respond To A Student Who Is Disengaged?

Two readers have asked a similar question:

Science Eduk8r:

What do you do with the student who simply has refused to work?

Mary B:

I am a new teacher and have a position teaching in a high school. My question for you is how to respond to an apathetic student in my classroom?

Many of us have had students in our classrooms who are disengaged.

What do we do?
