Bulletin Boards: The Great Corkboard Wasteland.

A successful classroom bulletin board display should not only be decorative, but also must have clear-cut purposes and functions: informational (i.e., post current school news), instructional (i.e., expand on classroom units), and motivational (i.e., tap subliminal awareness). Some suggested techniques include (1) using space other than the bulletin board (the door, area around the clock) as well as the board itself; (2) making collages of faces or of various materials (cloth, metal, wood) organized around a central theme; (3) putting up pictures traced with an overhead projector and letters cut from various old posters; (4) putting up pictures, cast-off commercial displays, cartoon strips, and political cartoons for which students can supply captions and write stories; and (5) making students responsible for preparing bulletin board displays.
