 We can't emphasize enough the usefulness of the [[private:​ebrb:​home|EBRB]]! It's a collection of numerous worksheets, activities, demonstrations,​ handouts, and homework assignments developed by past GSIs, all stored on this wiki. Most things in it are well-vetted and effective. It's a great place to pull out a good worksheet for a topic you're covering or to find inspiration for your section. We can't emphasize enough the usefulness of the [[private:​ebrb:​home|EBRB]]!

-As you may suspect, the EBRB was preceded by a physical Big Red Binder, which lives in the 7th Floor Library ​in Campbell Hall. Feel free to page through it if you wish - the "​PBRB"​ contains worksheets that haven'​t yet been scanned in to the EBRB. If you happen to find something really useful that doesn'​t seem to be on the EBRB, it'd be great if you could upload it.+As you may suspect, the EBRB was preceded by a physical Big Red Binder, which used to live in the 7th Floor Library ​of Campbell Hall. But like the 7th floor of Campbell, ​the days of the physical Big Red Binder have passed

-Great for giving students what they want (pretty astronomy!). ​Contact Attila Kabai, ''​akabai@astro.berkeley.edu''​. Also, make sure that you can actually operate the telescope and that you have a list of objects that you want to observe before actually running a star party. ​ Talk to your AY 300 instructor and/or Head GSI for more info.  Also check out the [[private:​ebrb:​observing_labs_star_parties|Star Party page]] in the EBRB.+Great for giving students what they want (pretty astronomy!). ​Make sure that you can actually operate the telescope and that you have a list of objects that you want to observe before actually running a star party. ​ Talk to your AY 300 instructor and/or Head GSI for more info.  Also check out the [[private:​ebrb:​observing_labs_star_parties|Star Party page]] in the EBRB.

-====Facebook & MySpace==== 
-They'​ll have info (and probably pictures) for most, if not all, of your students. ​ Also, to make it clear that you're not playing favorites or anything like that, rather than "​friending"​ your students online you might want to just create an online group for each of your sections that any of the students in the section can join. 
  
-====Digital Camera==== 
-Useful to take pictures of students/​classes to help with name memorization. ​ Contact ''​central@astro''​ to reserve the camera well in advance. 
- 
-====CourseWeb==== 
-Online directory of students in a given course or section, great for memorizing student names. GSI names must be assigned by a department administrator (Dexter) to specific sections before this system works. ​ Their homepage is at http://​courseweb.pitt.edu/​.
