Hopefully I won't get flamed, but I am a newbie and feel pretty good about this. I was supposed to work with a student today that didn't want to take or try a standardized test. I wrote down her name on the queen of hearts ahead of time, and then went to meet her. I had shown her experiments before, and as I was talking to her, she said, "I'll do it if you show me a really good trick." I forced the Q of Hearts on her, did not let her look at the face down card, and then asked her what was her favorite card. She replied, "The queen of hearts." I had her flip over her card, she squealed and said that she had to try on the test now. I let her keep the card, and during the test I noticed she kept picking it up and looking at it. A small success.

Perfect. Sometimes you just gotta get their attention.

Its amazing how much magic can change peoples attitudes, I have had people who hate magic suddenly change their minds and actually enjoy magic. I think it really helps when you make it more personal to them.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Hopefully she'll keep the card - it might serve as quite a comforting totem in future exams...
