SELF-STUDY: Bulletin Boards – Ideas for Every Classroom (5 hours)
As teachers, we spend so much time in creating an ideal classroom for our students that often we tend to forget the available and rich physical space that surrounds us in the classroom – the wall space.
A classroom can seem incomplete without attractive and educative bulletin boards. Have you ever looked at another teacher’s bulletin boards and wondered how they managed to make it so interesting? Maybe you don’t have a lot of experience with art, or maybe you’re running low on creative ideas.
This course provides a new and fresh direction that helps teachers understand the basic principles of art and design and how to apply these in planning and creating bulletin boards. Included are a number of ideas for interesting, interactive and educative bulletin boards. Through this course, teachers come up with some very creative and visually effective ideas for their classrooms and often are inspired to create their own classroom bulletin board makeovers.
