Showcasing Student Work

Ever been blown away by the work of your students? Why not share their amazing projects with a larger audience.
Published: 06/19/2020

Showing off your students’ work can be one of the most rewarding experiences you have as a teacher. Not only do you get to share the hard work of your students with a wider audience (parents included!), but the recognition that comes from spotlighting burgeoning talents and creativity can inspire students to greater achievements.

Sharing can be as simple as adorning the halls outside your classroom with student projects as second-grade teacher Amanda Downing does.

“We have displayed our projects proudly in the hallway so that all of the children and adults that walk through see what our second-graders are passionate about. They linger in front of the projects and learn! I hear kids outside my door saying, ‘Cool! Wow. Look at this one!’ It has been a wonderfully motivating assignment for my students over the years.”

Or sharing can reach a broader audience via technology, service learning projects, or contests. To get started, check out these ideas from educators around the country on how they showcase exemplary and innovative student work.
