You can see our substance abuse prevention Poster #31 to the left of the bulletin board.

Powerhouse Classroom Posters: Passive Interventions Improve Student Behavior and Motivation

Powerhouse Classroom Posters:
Improve Student Behavior and Motivation
 

 You Won't Believe the Power of
Passive Intervention Strategies

 

 

 

classroom managementHello from Youth Change Professional Development Workshops Director, Ruth Herman Wells. I know when people think of me, they think about my classroom management workshops and books. While it's great to be associated with my conference presentations, keynotes and books, I really love making classroom posters that absolutely transform students– even the most oppositional and resistant ones. Some of my posters were even good enough to be included in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movies. I think that they're also good enough to be included in your classroom too.

Whether you've discovered it or not, classroom posters are the perfect vehicle to rapidly improve students' behavior, attitude and motivation for school. They often can accomplish what mere words fail repeatedly to do. Even better, classroom posters save time and energy because they're passive interventions that require you to do absolutely nothing once you've hung them on your walls.

Poster #316 is one our most popular classroom posters, and beautifully illustrates the power of a passive poster versus the easy-to-ignore, time-consuming, actively implemented verbal interventions.

When you think of interventions, normally you probably think of active approaches. But, there is a whole world of powerful, passive approaches that are frequently forgotten or completely overlooked. With that in mind, we ask you to look around your classroom or office. What do you see on your walls? The items on your wall can have on-going, major impact– all without you doing anything at all.

Often, we tend to forget that young people may spend hours each day just staring at what surrounds them. If you surround them with nothing, they may get nothing. If you surround them with something powerful and persuasive, you may change lives. That's where our amazing, imaginative, compelling, unforgettable classroom posters fit in.

Our classroom posters have been drawing an awful lot of comment lately, and that's what made us realize how easy it is to underestimate the power of passive interventions like simple posters. People have been commenting so much that our class posters can sometimes accomplish what conventional approaches couldn't.

The range of classroom posters is unlimited, from thought-provoking to haunting, from inspirational to motivational, from troubling to sarcastic, from silly to calming.

Let us show you how to maximize your impact beyond conventional, active interventions that can eat up your time while producing minimal results. Instead, put your walls work for you, and you will be surprised how much more you can achieve when you surround your students with powerful agents of change. You may end up being pleasantly surprised how passive interventions can underscore, enhance and even "hammer home" the critical, must-learn points that you are trying to make with your students.

We will look at passive interventions in two ways. First, we'll cover the surprising range of passive intervention posters. Second, we'll show you free, fast and low-cost ways to make your own posters if you have more time than budget. These ideas will not require you to have a lot of time, art skills or computer expertise. We'll even show you how to get customized posters without you having to make anything or invest much time yourself.

 

Classroom Posters

That Are Highly Effective Passive Intervention Strategies

 

TYPES OF CLASSROOM POSTERS

 

Everyone has seen the motivational and inspirational posters that have become commonplace, but there are so many more options than that. Here are some other often overlooked ways to make your walls work for you all day:

Shocking Classroom Posters


Shocking posters are jarring and unexpected. Poster #015 (at right) is a great example.

It's hard to just shake off the comment of "I'm looking for the lowest paying job I can find ." If you have to look at that comment for hours per day, it could really, really stick with you.

 

 

 

Classroom Posters That Can Teach

It's hard to believe that a piece of paper tacked to the wall can teach,
but look at this silly poster for your classroom, Poster #22.

It does convey important information to students about
how to get help from teachers. It's silly but effective to call
teachers "lousy mind readers."

Classroom Posters That Reinforce What Has Been Taught

Poster #22 (from the preceding example above) can also reinforce and remind students of what they already know. It's better that a classroom poster provides an on-going reminder than you have to stop the class to provide a verbal reminder. Now you can clearly see how passive classroom management interventions can work so much better than active ones.

 

 

 

 

 

Posters Deliver Messages When Words Don't Work

Words sometimes fail to deliver the message, but pictures and colors may do the job when words fail. Take a look at Poster #28 for counselors, therapists, MFTs, school counselors and guidance counselors

.

A counselor might work hard to let a vulnerable youngster know that the counselor is a helping resource, and the child may not act on the message. This poster– a passive intervention– perhaps placed on the outside of the counselor's office door, can actually be a more effective and lasting lure than mere words.

 

 

 

Classroom Posters Can Haunt

A poster can look down on students for months or years at a time. Some posters can end up being down-right haunting. Well-executed pictures and text can gnaw at a youngster in ways that words can't accomplish. Look at Poster #7 to see how bothersome a poster can be. Obviously, the headline of "Dropouts Needed for High Paying Jobs" could linger.

 

 

HOW TO MAKE POSTERS

 

You may be very surprised to learn how easy it is to make classroom posters that can help you improve your students' motivational, behavioral and attitude issues. The internet has made it so easy. You can find endless clip art and photos all over the net. Before you use any art or photos, be sure that the site grants you use of their resources. We actually offer you free clip art you can use. Our free clip art can offer you some of the images you've seen on this page, but without having to pay the $8 cost for our posters to be sent to you. To grab a picture or piece of our free clip art, simply put your cursor over the item, right click "Save Picture As" and voila, the item is all your's. It's that easy

Free photos are tougher to find because many photos are protected by copyright. Word, Paint, Adobe Photoshop and many other programs can be easily used to create quick but powerful posters that can work all day every day on your wall..

Posters can be of any size. To easily make posters without a printer that produces large-size pages, print the poster using the largest size paper you can, then enlarge the poster on your copier. Printing shops can also enlarge and print full color posters for you, often for a cost of under $2 per poster. If you use a common computer program to make your posters, you can even send in the poster file via the internet, and not even have to leave your office or classroom.

You don't even have to make your posters yourself. Instead of traditional consequences for misbehavior, have students make posters. You can even have the students use their misbehavior as the focus of the poster. For example, if students get in trouble for bullying peers, perhaps they craft a poster on bullying.

Another idea: hold contests for students to make posters. Yet another idea: have poster construction become part of your instruction. For example, making posters could legitimately become an activity for language arts if substantial text is used. Making posters could be a far better activity than staring at the walls during study hall, detention or in school suspension. You can transform those unstructured, often unproductive times into the source of endless posters that make your walls work for you.
