RE: Student helpers

I have had a student helper in my classroom. The first year I had the
most brilliant helper one semester, then came the useless one the next
semester. He really only wanted to get out of class. I think a screen
process with recommendations from other teachers would be a good idea.

Subject: Student helpers

Has anyone had their secondary students help out at the elementary
level? Our
elementary teacher would like a once-a-week helper. I am concerned about

student burnout/boredom, safety in transfering, appropriate credit.
However I
think the idea is a good one...
