The Creative Syllabus

Decorative: The word "Syllabus" with a reversed image of the same word below it


"When you think of a syllabus, what comes to mind? Is it a boring, wordy document that outlines the content a teacher will address throughout the semester or school year? A ... syllabus can be so much more than that!" ("How to Create an Infographic Syllabus with Piktochart")
