My fake college syllabus

Course Description In this class, we will analyze some of World Literature’s greatest short novels in an attempt to interrogate the essence of plot and character while reading as few words as possible. Each class session will begin with a student presentation of 15 to 20 minutes, so we’re looking at an effective class time of about an hour. I’d love to give you a five-minute break halfway through the period, with the tacit understanding that we actually blow 15, but then I’d have to pretend I didn’t notice when 36% of you didn’t bother to come back.

Or I’d have to pass around the attendance sheet again, which is a major pain in the ass. Books Course books are available at the campus bookstore. LAI%20199 %20Information%20Overload %20Cameron.

English 101 – Digital Literacies

I am the proud product of my 3/4 Salvadorean and 1/4 Greek mother, and my 1/4 Italian, 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Spanish, and 1/4 Costa Rican father. Aside from my multicultural background, I am also left handed, have crazy curly hair, dimples, and posses a rather rare sense of humor.

Print Culture 101: A Cheat Sheet and Syllabus

College course syllabi: They’re too long, and they’re a symbol of the decline and fall of American higher ed. Illustration by Alex Eben Meyer When I was an undergrad in the ’90s, there was little more exciting than the first day of class. What will my professor be like? What books will I be reading? How many papers will I have to write? Answers came readily, in the form of a tidy one-page document that consisted solely of the professor’s name and office hours, a three-sentence course description, a list of books, and, finally, a very brief rundown of the assignments (papers, exams) and their relevant dates.
