You are not to do the work for basic students, but help them think of story ideas, work with them to develop sources, help them with questions to ask, remind them of the course’s requirements, etc. You will act as their news writing and reporting coaches. By doing so, you can help them pass the basic class – and you can help yourself pass E&D. But you must be  willing to work with them.
