I saw an email about student accommodations after I composed and posted my syllabi. There is a new website that collects together resources for teachers and students around accommodation requests and needs. It is called Academic Accommodations Hub. I am pasting in here the recommended paragraph from that new website. I agree with all of the below.
Students are often hesitant to request accommodations. You can help by assuring them that reasonable academic accommodations are their right and exist in order for them to have a fair chance at academic success. Encourage students to request academic accommodations through the campus offices that exist for this purpose, and are staffed by professionals.
You can make it easier for students by including a link to this website on your syllabus and by using some or all of the following talking points when you go over your syllabus in class.
Below are statements (some in print form, others in video (or just the audio of the video) for students who are not familiar with my approach to classes and which should be viewed before they commit to taking a course with me.
When links are available the buttons will turn blue or green.
A course dictionary of terms and the concepts they represent that are used frequently in my course instructions and grading rubrics that the student needs to understand in order to score well.
Titles, people, places, and terms in premodern and modern Japanese literature.
These panels lead to pages on the imperial poetry collection Selection of Poems Old and New (Kokin waka shū), The Tale of Genji and Heian culture, and The Tale of Heike. Each of these was developed for lecture series at the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco or for classes at UC-Berkeley but have been modified over time. They are intended for a general audience. The code supporting them is quite old.
