    Even though it is frustrating when we have those who don't read the
    assignments in our classroom, these individuals will always exist. I have
    learned that I can only do so much to try to "reel them in" and "keep them
    on the line." I always start by reading the first chapter aloud, I have
    groups of students teach chapters to the other students, etc., but there
    are people who have other issues beyond our classroom that they have to
    deal with, situations that we have no control over. The only thing we can
    do is motivate them to the best of our ability and try not to take it
    personally when they don't complete the reading and related work.
    Ultimately, they make the decision of whether or not they want to work. . .
