As I'm actually finished with my grading, I'm putting together my syllabus for next semester, and I'm trying (as I always do when I do these things) to focus all the course material to put my students on the right track....that is, assuming any of them read my syllabi and related course material to begin with
To this end, I am assembling two lists:
- topics I never want to see (such as papers on abortion, the death penalty, and so forth)
- phrases I never want to read (including "due to the fact that" and "according to Webster's Dictionary,")
C'mon, everyone, do my work for me!
