A Syllabus is a Chance to Show Your Sources

Brian Croxall


A syllabus is a guide to where a course will go. It lists the texts that will be read, it presents details of assignments and exams, and it gestures to the corners of a field where the teacher will (and won’t!) be taking discussions. In this sense, the syllabus is profoundly future-oriented. But I want to argue that you should re-orient your syllabus to the past—its own past—and use it as a chance to show your sources.
