Visit classrooms in other content areas. You can make a generic sales pitch and advertise your course. It is more effective if you can showcase some lessons or student work that is tied into the content area you are visiting.

Meet up with the counselors and help them understand what the course is you are teaching, who all you want in the class (everyone), what some fun activities you do in the class that would appeal to a variety of students.
