Jim Kurose has an excellent book and course material at his web site.
S. Keshav put together a course around his book -- that is one good way to
teach a class
Larry Peterson has a textbook that provides another model to teach
Gene Walrand also has a textbook with another approach.
I believe you do not need a "typical" syllabus; any of the above approaches
will work. I highly recommend Kurose's approach -- I used it inside Intel
(no pun intended!) with great success.

There isn't one. Indeed, if you look at what the professional societies
in our field think about networking you typically discover it buried in
the syllabus for the OS course in their model curriculum.
Incidentally, SIGCOMM is out to fix this glitch - we're looking to put
together a team of volunteers to produce a model curriculum for networking.
