Just found out I’m teaching another class…HELP

mrdegregorio:

School starts in two days. I just found out I’m teaching Psych and Sociology in ADDITION to my other two classes.

SCHOOL STARTS IN TWO DAYS!! What in the hell am I going to do?

I’ve never taught ANY of the classes I’m about to teach. I am extremely stressed about this.

If ANYONE out there has ANY experience in psych or sociology, PLEASE help me out. I am desperate.

I took psych in high school, but remember little of it.  I do remember studying key psych theories and watching One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Anyone else have suggestions?

I’ve got one foot in Education and one foot in Psych.  I’m not familiar with the necessaries that you need to touch on, or whether there’s any pre-existing syllabi for the psych end, or whatnot.  If there’s anything specific I can help you with, or you just need to talk about ideas in general, please message me — I’m currently unemployed and have plenty of time to help you out however I can help.  I can also give you my email from there.
