What Would You Do Wednesday: Scenario 15

Each week we will bring you a short scenario to address issues that you, your colleagues and students might face. How would you respond to these scenarios? Would you file a report, or do something different? Talk to your colleagues about these situations - the classroom should be a safe learning environment for students AND instructors!


An older male student in your class has good attendance, but he always sits in the back of the classroom. Even though he completes the assignments and does well on quizzes and exams, he rarely engages with other students in the class. You have designed your class to include group projects, and students will receive a substantial amount of their final grade from this project. You assign the student to a group, but the group members come to you and say that he won’t come to group meetings and will not respond to their emails. What would you do?

Post your comments below!

If you'd like someone from the 5 Star Consortium to follow up with you regarding this scenario, please email
