This two part online PD course provides a new and fresh direction that teachers can use to create an active, engaging, and inviting environment that promotes student learning. 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.The first section of 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 part, 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.

The second section focuses on equipping teachers to partner with the parents of their students. In this course, teachers will learn about various personalities and come away with an understanding of why parents think the way that they do. They will also discover strategies to use in a number of common challenging situations teachers face while working with parents, including planning and organizing activities. This section will help enhance teachers’ professional interaction and communication skills as well as help build lasting relationships with students’ parents.

    I loved seeing all the different Bulletin Board ideas. My favorite ideas were the different material ideas you can use to create texture and movement- newspaper, boxes, etc.

    I, along with 3 of my co-workers took PLB courses for the first time. We all agreed. They were enjoyable and most of all very informative. We are so excited to go back into our classrooms and put to practice what we've learned.
