These Walls Will Talk: Diplomas and the Stories They Tell
Montelongo, Ricardo
About Campus, v23 n2 p30-32 May-Jun 2018
With some creative thought and effort, teachers can intentionally turn their diplomas into effective environmental cues. By creating a diploma wall, teachers can encourage student engagement and motivation. Diplomas on display become more than part the office decor as they connect students to thoughts and behaviors needed for college success. Students can see these images and prompts every day, for example when they visit a faculty member during office hours or discuss degree plans with an academic advisor. The first step is to display the diploma prominently in the workspace where the teacher's story can have an impact and students will find motivation.
