I have tried different syllabus styles through the years and this one has been the most effective for getting and keeping my students’ attention while I discuss my expectations and rules. I give a little ‘open-syllabus pop quiz’ (about 10 to 15 questions) after reviewing all sections.
The text in this document is what I write on my syllabus, but you can edit the text of this resource as needed! Due to clip art licensing agreements, the doodles are not editable… but I hope that by editing the text boxes, you’ll be able to meet your needs!
Included in this syllabus are sections for:
-school name, course, teacher name, school year
-goals for the course
-teacher contact information
-class website address or Google Classroom join code
-beginning of class procedure
-rules and consequences
-a note about good character
