Useful punishments for students

My students do their homework... because we're only in September. But I'm sure it won't last long. I'm against punishments in general but we are being told that students who don't do their homework must be punished. So I'm looking for useful punishments. For example, there's no interest in copying texts or exercises three times. The student won't learn anything by copying... I was thinking of asking them to learn some nursery rhymes by heart and "sing" them in front of the classroom !

Do you have any ideas ?
Don't forget that they have to be useful ! Thanks !

there IS a punishment for students who fail to live up to their responsibilities - it's called failing the grade. hold a student back while his classmates advance, and he'll learn quick enough.

i am absolutely disgusted you would actually consider humiliating a student in front of his peers like that. this is exactly the kind of thinking from teachers that has made me consider home schooling my child over the years.

I don't get it sorry.
What would you do if a student never does his homework ? I'm just looking for useful thinks. Maybe the word punishment is too hard but I don't know evry English words yet And I don't need virtual parents even if I'd like to have Mr BAW as a father !

I've never heard of that either. That students parents would be up in arms that their child wasn't getting their education.

I'd prefer to be humiliated.


My teacher called me a dunce once infront of our class and told me I'd fail her class and I'd be really lucky if I scraped a pass. I came in the top 5% of the country in the public exams for her subject.

ok, so...

what exactly are the consequences for a child who doesn't finish his homework, classwork, has excessive tardies/absences?

are there none?

is it impossible to fail a grade in europe?


and if you "don't need virtual parents" who the hell are you asking?

some students just need som motivation
they dont think about next year, just this year and mostly having fun
they dont immediattely think of being hold back
thats something for at the end of the year, when its too late
if they get some motivation now, they'll pass

Humiliation ? I don't think it's the solution. It's quite hard. I can understand someone who doesn't do his work once, I mean that's not a huge problem, but if it goes on, what's the aim of going to school ?

I don't give much homework myself. I always try to make them work in class instead of making them passive while listening to what I'm saying !

there are, but most teachers say what to do
a techer of mine had a little book where if you didnt do homework you had to pick a page
writing Bohemian Rhapsody with five different colours
drawing a van gogh painting
tell 5 jokes
just a little motivation to do your homework

i must say it worked

and it is possible to fail a grade in europe, but it should be preveneted if possible

you can punish and punish and punish a person and it won't sink in. you can only try and motivate a person so much. i've seen people at school who were real trouble makers and teachers spent a lot of their time trying to make them see the point in passing their exams. i met a lot of them this week saying they regretted they didn't listen at school and are now sitting exams at 20 i was doing when i was 15/ 16. i think holding a person back is wrong.
