27. But what do you do with the coasting students who know the stuff?

You can't punish them for already knowing it. Yeah, they coast. But as long as they do the work, that's their choice.

Had one student who could have been in pre-AP or AP. "Not worth my time. I like history." I teach science.

Then there are the kids who are so clueless as to think the work's easy and then fail.
