Here's what my German 1 syllabus looks like:
Students will highlight the answers to the top 4 frequently asked questions - things like
"Did I miss anything when I was absent?"
"If I get a lower score on my test retake, can I keep my first score?"
"What's the website for the online textbook?"
I hope this activity will push students to read the syllabus more closely and reduce the number of times I have to answer these questions. When they ask, I can just remind them that the answer is highlighted on their syllabus, and hopefully they will learn to be more self-reliant.
