We have to provide syllabi for courses that haven’t been taught in forever. Everybody is running around like a beheaded chicken. “But what do we do? This is catastrophic! How do I create dozens of syllabi on the spot?”
I sat down and made 6 syllabi for different languages in under 10 minutes. What? How? The courses are intermediate conversation 2 in Greek, Russian, German, Italian, Arabic, and Yoruba. I took the existing syllabus for Spanish, did find and replace for the word “Spanish” and pasted photos of corresponding countries at the top. Changed the textbook, played around with fonts, so they don’t look identical, and it’s all done.
People are either pathologically honest or like needless drama.
