Finished “Start with Why” by Simon Sinek

I truly loved the book and have taken away a number of ideas I will incorporate into my life. I also have been thinking about how to use it in my classroom. I have been thinking about my syllabus, the first thing a student usually see in a class. We always make sure to cover the course objectives in the syllabus, the what the student will learn. But we never include the why they should learn the materiel. Why is it important for you the student to care about this materiel. As the instructor I already know my why I teach this, I love this subject materiel and get excited at the possibility of sharing this.  Why to do we as instructors never take the time to share this with the student. All my future syllabi will start with this.
