Taking an idea from a veteran teacher, I developed a PowerPoint presentation for my syllabus this coming year. The syllabus in written form is about 8 pages. Instead of printing a copy for every student, I have it on the class website for reference.
On the first day of school, I’m going to show the syllabus PowerPoint and then give the kids a quiz. I think it might be more effective than just reviewing the syllabus in paper form. I added silly clip art to keep the slides visually interesting.
Below are four sample pages from the PowerPoint presentation. Here is the slide presentation in PDF format (1.9MB). If you want the original PowerPoint file ready for you to adapt for your own needs, email me see below.
Due to popular demand, I am making the PowerPoint version available online.
