PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Inspire your students to think about education and learning by displaying these 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch posters at the beginning of the year. I display two or three per month. Included is a mini research project with student worksheets that can be done later in the school year. Students explore the Web in order to find biographical information about the people who wrote the quotations. Quotes are by: Benjamin Franklin, Socrates, Nelson Mandela, Abigail Adams, John Dewey, A.A. Milne, John Milton, Rosa Parks, Eric Fromm, Joseph Campbell, George Santayana, Allan Bloom, Marvin Minsky, Vernon Howard, Abraham Lincoln, Willa Cather, Lloyd Alexander, Will Rogers and more.

Amazing, over 30 quotes! I loved the clean look, too. Thank you so much.
On  August 11, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Thank you TeachNich! I'm so glad you like their appearance. I figured putting images and pictures on them would distract from the meaning of the quotations. :)
Have a wonderful new school year!

Hi Tammy! Thank you so much! I created this packet of quotations because some of my students don't understand the importance of education. I display one or more a month and use them as springboards for positive discussion about education and learning. Thank you for sharing on Secondary Saturday!

On  June 26, 2012Vanessa Pritchett (TpT Seller) said:
I write a different quote on the board everyday. This is perfect. I did have some trouble printing it. I had to do it several times to get the complete copy. It kept saying that it was flatting which I am not familier with. It downloaded fine though. Thank you!
On  June 28, 2012Ruth S. answered:
Hi Vanessa! I'm sorry this happened to you. I've never had anyone mention flatting before but I think might be an Adobe issue. I do know that older versions of Adobe can cause printing problems. You might send an email to TeachersPayTeachers about it. They have the technical expertise and will help you. I'd suggest maybe trying to print it on another computer too. :) Thanks for letting me know!

Thanks Ann Marie! I've always felt that kids don't THINK about what education is and why it's so important. So glad you can use the ones I chose :)

These are great. Use quotes in my classroom all the time.
On  April 7, 2012Ruth S. answered:
Hi Lcrump6! Thank you so much for your rating and comment. I LOVE posting these because it makes the kids think about education and how it's important to get a good education. I always have a discussion with them when I post new ones. It's nice to be able to explain who the people are too. :)
