The day you stepped foot in the door you were handed a syllabus that described the focus and objectives of that class, as well as a clear calendar of topics to be learned and project due dates. You may have even been warned not to lose it, as another wouldn't be provided (okay, I'm dating myself here. We didn't have electronic copies of things yet when I went to college). But it was well established that a syllabus was important and yet, I never received one prior to my freshman year of college. This seems another one of those easy to remedy challenges that can definitely better prepare students who are college bound and also those who will be going into the work force, who have to follow a schedule. High school students are notorious for mismanagement of time. One great way to better teach them to manage that time and become more accountable for their learning is to provide them with a syllabus. In my AP Literature and Composition class, students receive a syllabus that maps out the entire year, with clear expectations and specific objectives to help students see the whole picture.

It doesn't only help students though, it helps me stay on track and see the scope of the year. Here are some things to include in your syllabus for maximum organization for all: Putting these essential pieces of information into a document will undoubtedly help any teacher organize the year and appropriately for optimal student success and it will help students clearly understand what is expected and the timeline for the full year. This global perspective will ensure focus for everyone. Following a syllabus is a skill that can easily be taught in high school to better prepare students for their future and it doesn't only have to apply to seniors (although for them is it more of an imperative).
The sooner we help students learn to use a syllabus as an organizing tool, the better adept they'll become at finding their own way through it. Don't be afraid to be flexible with your syllabus and leave a TBD (to be determined) to allow for student input where possible. As long as you're clear with what your expectations are, students will only gain from this experience. How do you communicate the goals of your courses with students?

First encounters from the safety of your own home, dressed as you like in complete comfort. Hearing someones voice beats typing and reading long, drawn out (and often misleading) profiles any day! After years of trying out every dating site out there, chat lines have proven to be a really intimate and unique way for me to meet new people. I ve tried them all. While LiveLinks is my type of place, the others are great too.
Wow. I guess I just like getting home and picking up the phone rather than staring at a screen for another 8 hours. It was different at first calling chatlines looking for a date. For me, the 65 minute free trials made the whole thing a win-win. It s incredible how many fascinating people there are out there once you pick up the phone.
Living in a rural area has its advantages, but when it comes to meeting new people, there are not many options available. Of course, you can take advantage of town meetings and church services, but more often than not, the only attendees will be people from the area. As the world becomes increasingly digital, so to is our way of meeting people. Consider that in 7558, three years after eHarmony launched, it claimed to have 8 million members. Today, eHarmony boasts 66 million.
