Out of Your Element? Find a Student Assistant

Cartoon

I have one thought. It is that you should identify an excellent, well-organized student and ask that person to help you with the class. You might as well be frank with the class that you need a student assistant, since you are not familiar with the class and/or the subject matter. If a lesson has to be reviewed, ask the student to help you with it. If a textbook is involved, ask the student to take the class through the steps found in the textbook.

How do you identify such a student? You have to ask around among class members before the class begins, saying that you need a student assistant and asking which person would be good at it. You need someone with a strong voice so that the students can hear him/her and someone who understands the work.
