Do your syllabi and assignments exclude students? Ensure everyone feels valued, acknowledged, and studied.
Students often express frustration that they cannot see themselves in a syllabus, must complete assignments based on biased assumptions about them, or focus on a curriculum that omits their interests, culture, and backgrounds.
The first introduction students have to you and your course is your syllabus and assignments list. You will lose students’ engagement and interest if those materials include language and ideas that communicate that they are not a part of your course. You must let students know you believe they should be valued, acknowledged, and studied.
