Sample Syllabi: Some Observations

More than 20 of you responded to our call for sample syllabi by sending yours. Thank you! It may not be a stratified random sample, but your collection represents many different disciplines and courses as well as differences in content, format, style, and tone. I’ve also been perusing syllabi collections on various discipline-based teaching sites. Again, there was nothing systematic about this look at those syllabi, which means my observations, questions, and suggestions are based on an eyeball analysis.
