This is a general syllabus that I have used for both my language arts and college prep elective courses. It is a great first piece to go over with students so they know what the expect in the classroom and what is expected of them as well. I use this as a first homework assignment so that parents also see the syllabus and agree to what is inside of it; helping you when it comes to the management of your classroom. You may need to edit your own course description but it is a great tool for students to hold onto for the school year. This specific syllabus is for a 7th grade ELA course that includes units and a timeline.
