i am as my athor title explains, a child with a behavior disorder. i believe i can help you. i feel i am an intelligent young person and can offer solutions to your problem. a child by nature is programed to take in information, or in simple terms learn. a teachers job is to give the child a enviroment to be able to learn and not only that but process it in a way so it can be usefull. now this brings me to my point, the school system is set in a way that it serves the teachers needs better than the student. the "stand and deliver" method is, shall i use the term "running ramped" and its no wonder that kids are rebeling. i myself have accepted the fact that if my thirst for information is to be quenched i must look for it on my own. if the problems of the students are going to change then the problems of the curriculum must first be adressed. the are many in number but the few add up to one. INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION now i'm not criticing the way you do your job, i don't know you. i just wanted to give you a view from the other side. every thing above is an opinion even if stated as a fact.

it is neccesary to feed the intrest of above or below average kids. give them things that they want and need, not trivial things. do not assume that every child has the same general interests. do not assume! that is the biggest mistake and the most widely made. ask what they feel the want to learn then use it in a way that can be applied in sicumstances other then there apparent context. in other words, make it interesting. now since we are speaking about children with behavior disorders the obviously can not be treated as other students. it it nessacary to listen and let speak. and not constantly diagnose. not every off topic or perhaps odd metion is a symptom.
this is all just another grasp for information. i hope that you might find it usefull.
