Posters back from printer between texts. I’ll be rolling these up and passing them out first day of class.

Last summer, I developed a comic book syllabus for a course I taught on comics. Here is one of the pages from that syllabus. I liked how that format forced me into boiling down the class information into the most basic descriptions of expectations.
This fall I’ll be teaching an advanced creative writing class focusing on poetry and poetry writing. For this class, I decided to create a one-page syllabus poster that will be approximately 17 X 22 inches, or about 4 times larger than a regular syllabus. Once again, this format (while much larger) still provided some nice constraints that forced me into thinking about how I could be as direct and clear as possible about the course and expectations.
