    ...
    Appearance isn't everything, but creating eyecatching graphics for your classroom can add visual appeal to otherwise drab posters, presentations and communication. Appealing graphics can be essential in grabbing your students' attention and interest in classroom or extracurricular activities, and it can be vital to your communication with parents and colleagues. A good graphic can be like a fantastic hook at the beginning of a novel...it is certainly not the enitre story, but it is definitely what gets you interested.
    Read through this PowerPoint {It's All About the Graphics_embedded.ppt} and explore the links and apps. All of the photographs are a link to a webpage, and you will find many wonderful tools to add some spice to all of your graphics!
    ...
    for teachers.
    Your Assignment:
    Create a poster to display in your classroom. It can be a poster for anything. You may want something related to your content area, a quote or book covers.
    ...
    If you are using PowerPoint to create your poster, save it as a jpeg for easy printing options.
    Post your file to the Edmodo page. Don't forget you can print your poster on the postermaker at your feeder Middle School.
