It's a sickness...moving on!
Monday evening was spent creating my classroom syllabus. Every year, I angst over this, because I know it is the first thing my students will receive from me. Even though I inevitably know that ten of them will be left on desks the first day of school, I want them to come away with a better understanding of this class.
I want students in my class to walk away with a love of inquiry. I don't want them to just learn the meaning of a phrase, or how to diagram a sentence, but how to ask questions and inquire about the world around them. This week, I'll be posting my first days of school activities for my middle school students.
Here's how my syllabi turned out, I still have to work on my regular LA class, and I managed to combine my 7th grade LA1 and 2 into one syllabus for students!
I found the rules for Interactive Student Notebooks online somewhere a few years ago (can't remember where, oops!), and adapted them for my classroom!
I really like my syllabus to be colorful and eye catching, like a magazine! What do you think? What does your syllabus look like?
