    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Tona Hangen’s “Extreme Makeover, Syllabus Edition” challenges the notion of traditional syllabi by suggesting that in giving her syllabi “extreme makeovers” Hangen discovered she “also framed the class to give students more responsibility for the learning, including punching some holes in the semester to be filled with student-chosen content later. It was a course redesign on many levels, and the eye-catching syllabus that resulted was the culmination of a deeper rethinking of what I was teaching and what I wanted my students to learn.” This first year seminar syllabus on the American carnival incorporates student learning outcomes shared by all first year seminars at Worcester State University and Hangen’s commentary on those outcomes. As with the previous syllabus, work, expectations, and criteria for the course are fully articulated here, providing groundwork for meaningful assessments later in the course. This syllabus also demonstrates Angelo’s concept of assessment as a process throughout the course of the semester with clearly staged, transparent, and increasingly complex expectations.
