WHAT BELONGS IN A SYLLABUS?

WHAT AM I LOOKING FOR IN GRADING?

1) *Class Name – what school – dates class would be taken – credit hours

2) *Instructor information – best contact method for students

3) *Course objectives / student expectations

4) *Course materials

5) *Course calendar

7) *Tell how grades are calculated; When assignments are due.

8) *Communicate connection from assignments back to objectives

9) *Other information: Attendance/Tardy policy, Plagiarism policy, Resources

A syllabus is more than a checklist of items to do.

It should do more than dictate. It is communication.

It sets the tone for the course-

Express expectations and outcomes intended.

Objectives should be listed, as well as deadlines.

Course materials.

Course calendar.

(Other information, course sensitive: Lab materials or calendar,

Writing lab resources, Plagiarism policies, etc.)

THINGS THE SYLLABUS CAN HELP COMMUNICATE:

*Students need to understand what is expected from them.

*They need to understand their purpose / what outcomes they can look forward to / how their lives are improved by taking the course.
