Syllabi


Below you can find syllabi from some courses I frequently teach.  Feel free to use them in whole or in part.


First-Year Composition (FYC) Syllabus

This is my template for a mandatory freshman / first-year writing class.  It’s based on the University of Pittsburgh model, which centers around producing critical essays in response to academic texts.

Written Professional Communication Syllabus

Here is a syllabus for a professional writing / business communication class.  It draws on some classic rhet-comp scholarship to help students think more critically about the writing they do at work.

Digital Media Syllabus

This is a syllabus for an advanced writing class centered on digital media production.  Students read texts about the relationship between humans and tools, research their own tech use, and compose a variety of multimedia documents.
