  • Grading and evaluation activities that incorporate record books as a significant portion of the grade;

Summary

A Syllabus may not be required in a district, but may be a very useful tool for communicating your expectations and course requirements to students, parents and administrators in a written format. Be sure to include the integral parts of our program:

  • Classroom (What will students do in class?)
  • FFA (How will you make FFA activities integral?)
  • SAE (How will students apply what they learn?)
