I have a Year 10 girl who reads voraciously, has reading and spelling ages of 18+ and who either can't or won't put pen to paper. Apparently this has been on-going throughout secondary, and her mother claims nothing has been done about it in the last 4 years. Has anyone experienced anything like this? The student is very quiet, and gets very frustrated in my lessons. She mutters about wasted paper every time I give them a worksheet, and says things like "what's the point?" a lot. She seems really disaffected. She seems to have no confidence in her writing ability. Any ideas or experiences would be gratefully received.
