student say I'm done and stop early

Ever had a student say “I’m done” and stop early?

Many educators encounter the “I’m Done” student in teaching situations.

When students are new to drama or a new skill is being introduced, there will inevitably be the “I’m done” student (or “we’re done” group) reaction. This is totally understandable if the skill being covered is very basic or if students don’t have enough background in drama to know what to do next in their rehearsal.  So, I plan for this reaction, knowing that teams which work more quickly or that have strong leadership might complete the task sooner than others.  Read my latest blog post on for classroom management ways of handling this situation.
