Decorating Your High School Classroom


July 21, 2009

Found In: classroom setup, yearbook

I have taught English in both middle and high school and find that there is a serious lack of tasteful educational posters and decorations for high school students. There is nothing worse than a student recognizing a poster, worksheet game, etc. that is intended for use in a middle school classroom but has been used in his/her high school instead.

I buy very little from the educational stores. Instead, I buy plants, fresh flowers and artwork. Plants not only clean the air in the room, but they provide a caring environment. Many students can relate to plants as living things. I always have fresh cut flowers on my desk, and it is amazing how sometimes the most agitated student will calm down after gazing at the flowers. I go to garage sales and buy all kinds of art work to display in the classroom. I also make my own posters and put up a lot of the students’ work.
