Appendix A: 2005-06 Handbook for Teaching

The "Contemporary AACP SAS Handbook for Teaching: A Syllabus Repository"

The 2005-06 SAS Curriculum Committee continues the task of updating the Teaching Handbook. The Contemporary Handbook for Teaching consists of course syllabi arranged by SAS content areas. These syllabi are intended to serve as potential reference sources for instructors developing new courses or modifying existing courses. Through the use of the syllabi, instructors may identify alternative textbooks or recommended readings, suggested topics for coverage, and even some potentially innovative teaching strategies. We have made no attempt to edit files or their content, although some files may have been renamed, nor have we reviewed or selected which syllabi to include. Each syllabus is available as a PDF file created directly from the file submitted.

As most SAS members realize, our content areas may be overlapping, and specific courses may cover a variety of SAS content areas. While we attempted to sort syllabi into the most pertinent content area, you may find additional coverage of topics in a different folder.

NOTE: If you are interested in contributing a syllabus to the Contemporary Handbook, please contact Nathaniel Rickles at:

Use the "Contents Directory of Syllabi" to locate a syllabi that interests you. For example, if you want to find a course that is taught at the University of Washington, you can look at the far right column, locate the school's name and find the corresponding courses. Then, once you've found the course you're interested in, look at the far left column and locate the category in which the course is. Then open the corresponding folder on this Web page.
