|Use the indexes above to view some of the posters we have done in recent years. Each sample features the poster and a close-up view of four of the panels.
If you are doing a poster with your class, our recommendation is to not show the sample posters to your students. Showing them completed posters is unlikely to improve their work and possibly diminishes their accomplishment by comparing them to others. The surprise of the class when they see the proof is well worth the "secrecy" in the beginning. Showing students sample panels might be appropriate to demonstrate art and text issues. In general, classes do very well without seeing how the finished product will appear. Only the teacher really needs to be aware of the details for reaching the goal.
Our experience is that students respond well to "discovery" and learn best when not shown the "final product" before they have created it.
