Half the students in my half year advertising class were seniors. Many of
them took the class only because they needed an additional half credit to
graduate. Although they all had had the foundation class, their aim was to simply
pass. It was difficult. The enthusiatic sophomores and juniors had chosen
this class instead of something else. One of the tricks I used to review
assignments, critiques, etc. was to have one of the popular funny girls be my
assistant. She stood at the blackboard asking questions and writing down the
answers. I would direct what she would say. She loved it and took it seriously.
The kids were really in to it. Every teaching situation is different. It's
important to teach a class and not just a subject. Eileen
