This week, my class doubled in size (from one student to two). My new student is a boy from China. His English level isn’t as good as his classmate’s but it’s something I can definitely work with. The real challenge is finding out what he has already learned.
I’m also a little worried about his ability to keep up with the curriculum. He enrolled a few weeks before midterms and it would be unfair to test him over what he hasn’t learned in my class. Even though I’ve taught for a while, I’m always thrown for a loop now and then.
Any ideas on how to handle this?
