    Hi Guys,

    I have been given this cover work for Grade 9, until the appointed guy comes. I never taught English in my life. Only Maths!

    I haven't seen these students before, and am not sure what to do in those 40 minutes of my lesson.

    I am thinking of giving them a diagnostic test, testing at least reading and writing. Then going over the answers.

    What would you suggest?

    Can you lead me to a website from where I can download short quizzes?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Maybe you have already started this class but I'm confused why you haven't been told their level by the head of department or fellow English teachers. I would say find this out immediately. It also seems weird you haven't been given material. How long are you teaching them for?
