My syllabus template, in an ideal world:
Where and When: (some classroom, sometime)
Course Goals: By the end of the course students will know more about (X) than they did when they came in. If you a) show up and b) pay attention. If you don't, I don't see how that's my problem.
Evaluation: (whatever I'm grading them on)
- Hand it in on time, or there will be consequences. See flowchart for your chances of talking me round.
- Disturb the class and you will be outside the door.
- Plagiarize and we will fuck your shit up . I mean it. Don't even.
About covers it.
