Q. What if I don’t have enough students to fill all of the student jobs in my classroom?
A. I have concluded that only five of the jobs are truly needed. With a small class, you could do an Invisibles class with just one artist, one story writer, one quiz writer, one videographer, and one Professeur 2.
Q. What about the rest of the jobs? How important are they?
A. Some of those jobs are “filler” jobs, for example the Assistant to the Videographer, who merely counts down for the videographer. It is a job I invented to give “the-kid-who-needs-a-job-in-order-to-feel-that-he-belongs” something to do. The Retell Director can be done by someone else in Hub A. The Reader Leader is a job you can do. The Story Driver can be of great help, but is not necessary if you are on top of (literally with the floor cards) of your game with pacing yourself through the questioning levels. None of the Hub D jobs are critical. Indeed, some classes don’t have the energy to put together a nice tech team in their class anyway. But those Hub D jobs sure add to what you can accomplish at the end of the year in terms of PR for your program, not to mention enrollments!
