Syllabus Success

Your syllabus is the first impression students will have of your class. Many teachers at Liberty High School use digital tools to create dynamic syllabi for their classroom and publish to their websites. Want some digital tools options to check out?
Online newsletter formats: Tackk and Smore are both very user friendly and allow for text, images, and video.
Design Platforms: Adobe Spark and Canva have great templates and free stock images or upload your own.
Infographics: Piktochart works well as an embedded infographic, but lacks the ability to print without frustration.
Stating the Obvious: Google Docs is always a great choice for creating a syllabus as it is easy to create, update, and print and you can include images and links to video, but watch out to ensure your syllabus doesn't read like a novel.
Digital Citizenship Alert:
Looking for digital citizenship statements to include on your syllabus? To make it easier for you to select and use #DigiCit statements, we have created a Google Doc: Copy and Paste Digital Citizenship Statements

What should you include on a syllabus? Check out some Liberty High School examples for ideas:

  1. These are fantastic syllabus examples. Thanks to all of you that shared. Adobe Spark is another great platform for creating digital flyers. I used it for the first time last week, and I love it!
