What Video?[edit]

On the sample syllabus, it does NOT say that students watched a video in the first week.Kbarchard (talk) 15:33, 15 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]

What subject?[edit]

This page says that Marguerite reads about "the subject". However, no 'subject' has been mentioned. Perhaps this section needs to be re-written.Kbarchard (talk) 15:34, 15 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Verb tense[edit]

Throughout this extended example, there is inconsistent verb tense. The professor is sometimes talked about in the past tense. For example, she "knows" things and "opts" to do things. But sometimes the professor is talked about in the past tense. For example, she "evaluated" and "explained". I think we should make the entire example use the same tense. It would be helpful to agree in advance what tense we will use. I don't have an opinion about which tense to use. Suggestions?Kbarchard (talk) 16:10, 15 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Is Professor Ruppel male or female?[edit]

The first page of this example says that the professor is a "she". Therefore, I have changed a few "he"s to "she"s on other pages. Which is correct?Kbarchard (talk) 16:24, 15 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]


On the sample syllabus, it says that students were asked to read "Wikipedia: Five pillars". On the details page here, it says that they were asked to read "Wikipedia Basic Principles". I think these should be consistent with each other (and with what was actually taught during the course). I also think we should add a link to this resource, but I can't find it on the bookshelf.Kbarchard (talk) 16:39, 15 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]
